Literary agents for politics and current affairs


There's a very broad and eclectic group of books covered by this headline. If your book isn't strictly about politics, but is (like Malcolm Gladwell's) about how society actually works or (like Michael Lewis's) about  specific aspects of how the world works, then you are probably still looking for agents who work in this same broad category.

Do be aware that no agents specialise only in this area - the field just isn't large enough. So you should expect your agent to represent not merely serious, topical non-fiction but also (most likely) plenty of fiction, and plenty of other non-fiction as well. That doesn't mean the agent concerned won't have the necessary connections. He or she will have them - and be motivated to place your work in the best (and most lucrative) place possible.

We've put a sample of such agents in the list below - but do note that these names represent just  tiny sample of our overall database. You will get the most from Agent Hunter if you create and refine your own searches.


The Agent Hunter database and how to use it

There are plenty of politics-loving agents and you won't want to approach them all. The best way to develop and refine your shortlist of likely targets is to go straight to our main search page and use the search tools on the left to make your selection.

You can select by genre (eg: "Current Affairs") but you can also select by the agent's level of experience, appetite for new clients and very much more. Our database is completely comprehensive and it's really, really easy to create the searches you want.
