Two Books About Government and Partisan Nonsense

From a Wall Street Journal story by Barton Swaim headlined “Political Partisans Left, Right, and Center”:

Alice M. Rivlin, who died in 2019 at the age of 88, was a liberal economist and an accomplished public servant. She ran the Congressional Budget Office (she was its first director) and the Office of Management and Budget, and in the late 1990s served as vice chair of the Federal Reserve. She was also “a partisan Democrat calling for more bipartisanship,” as her admiring son and daughter- in-law point out in the preface to her last and posthumously published book, “Divided We Fall: Why Consensus Matters.”
