WASHINGTON (CNN) - Former Sen. John Edwards is out with the latest contribution to the library of works penned by 2008 presidential candidates: "Ending Poverty in America: How to Restore the American Dream," which hit bookstores Monday.
The North Carolina Democrat, who until recently headed the Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity at the University of North Carolina, is credited as editing the book, along with Marion Crain, who replaced Edwards at the Center, and UNC professor Arne Kalleberg. The book is a collection of articles addressing various aspects of social and economic policy and features a contribution from fellow unsuccessful vice presidential nominee Jack Kemp, a former GOP congressman and Housing Secretary under former President George H.W. Bush.
Edwards authored the book's final article, also titled "Ending Poverty in America," an 11-page essay offering a number of policy proposals and personal anecdotes.
Other current White House hopefuls who have written books include Democrats Hillary Clinton, Dennis Kucinich, Barack Obama, and Bill Richardson. Republican authors include Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee, John McCain, Mitt Romney, and Tom Tancredo.
