The Hill Times' List of Top 100 Best Political, Government, Public policy and Canadian History Books in 2012

Jeff Rubin is the author of The End of Growth: But Is That Bad?

Canadian authors on why they wrote their books:

NAHLAH AYED, author of A Thousand Farewells: A Reporter’s Journey From Refugee Camp to the Arab Spring. “I felt like my reporting was all these spasms of reports. I wanted to put it all into one coherent narrative, with a bit more context and try to link all these different events. A lot of what we do in the news, unfortunately, is cover spikes of news. Often in the Middle East, spikes of news means spikes of violence, but I don’t think we really serve our audiences well because we don’t have as much in between. So I thought if I were to write a book maybe that might help fill in some of the blanks of how these events relate to each other and what it all means for the people of the region. That’s how it started.”
