ISO recommendations for books that nurture a more civil politic

I want to create a small book shelf of books and resources (audio could be included) that help people come to a more civil and gracious perspective on politics.

My personal journey, over the past four years or so has started with a desire to better understand JS Mill and then seek a wider influence of perspective from daily news. The Dispatch has been wonderfully balancing in my life (I’ve even ditched the New York Times but certainly kept Atlantic in the cue). I find that I am less angry when I hear of contrary opinions and I feel like I am slower to judge.

This is just a draft.
