Politics and democracy are very sensitive topics, and reasonable debates can quickly turn into heated arguments if facts and important information are not delivered in the right manner. Being a democrat requires a tremendous knowledge base about politics and how different segments of the government works. There are plenty of books which can help in building the knowledge about politics and also learn from the successful leaders and democrats about their philosophies on politics. Here are some of the best books written by democrats to pass on the knowledge every young democrat should have. Before you start reading these books and start to develop an opinion or an idea, understand that the books are not meant to divert you from what you actually feel, and not meant to convert your views in any way.

A fiction, written by Ayn Rand is a case study of how a society disintegrates when citizens demand equality.
