Notebook of a Native Washingtonian is Gilbert Hahn's follow-up to The Notebook of an Amateur Politician (and How He Began the D.C. Subway) (Lexington Books, 2002). A distinguished Washington attorney for over fifty years, Hahn has had a lifetime interest in the welfare of the District of Columbia and his fellow Washingtonians. This book chronicles Hahn's social and political life as a native Washingtonian.

Every lover of Washington should read this book and secure another dozen copies as gifts for friends. I promise you a rewarding experience- unless you fear a strong case of nostalgia. -- George McGovern, from the foreword
