The world will still receive a book by a senator about big business — it just won’t come from the party it had expected.
Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who ran for the Democratic presidential nomination, will publish Antitrust: Taking on Monopoly Power From the Gilded Age to the Digital Age in April.
The New York Times describes it as a mix of history, law, personal anecdotes and politics and notes that the company releasing it is an imprint of Penguin Random House, whose bid to purchase Simon & Schuster raised concerns about monopoly issues.
Klobuchar’s colleague from across the aisle, Josh Hawley, lost his Big 5 publishing deal last week over Simon & Schuster’s concerns about his role in the pro-Trump riot at the US Capitol.
