Article of the day: five books to change conservative minds

The photo shows the covers of the five books described in the post.

Cass Sunstein at Bloomberg has suggested a list of five well-argued books that might shift conservative opinion on a variety of social issues.  As he notes,

After reading these books, conservatives are hardly likely to rush out and volunteer to work for the Democratic Party. But they will end up a lot more humble. They’ll also have a far better understanding of why so many of their fellow citizens disagree with them — and on one or two issues, they might even change their minds.

One shortcoming of the list is that all of the authors are men, and most are white.  I’ll feature some essential reading by women and people of color over the coming days.
