Default PLEASE help me in finding good books

Asalam-u-alikum,
Dear members please guide me in finding good books for CSS.
There are number of books in the market and that creates lots of confusion.
FPSC recommends too many book for a single subject, they often suggest 30 to 40 books for each subject. 1st of all it is impossible to get all the recommended books. Secondly, no one can study 30 books for one subject (PRACTICALLY). Thirdly, if we had to choose few books from those recommended books then we are not sure about the best book among them and which book contain complete syllabus.
its been one week i am searching books but still standing at point zero undecided. I cannot join any academy due to my job hours.
Please Please Please help me and suggest me books for css 2020, maximum 2,3 books for each subject.
My optional subjects are as follows:

1)Accountancy and Auditing 200
2)Public Administration 100
3)Gender Studies 100
4)US history 100
5)Criminology 100

Walaikum-asalam,

I can speak to the US History portion of the syllabus. I would advise using Majumdar's book as a deep dive into US History material and then following up with another source to review and corroborate the material. There are a lot of sources online that are accurate (anything prepared for US High School Students for their AP US History Exams).

Spend the rest of your time practicing essay responses (and MCQs) to past US history examinations. These can also be found online.

Good luck.

Best,
Qasim

1) Criminology by Advance Publishers. Besides, follow the websites that are recommended by the FPSC. In my view, you should also read relevant editorials/opinions that are published now-and-then.
2) History of the USA by Majumdar. You may also go for Alan Brinkley’s “The Unfinished Nation” provided that you have ample time for preparation.

Remember in your prayers
Regards

For History of USA I suggest: "These Truths" A History of USA by Jill Lepore (book available online)
Also "US History for Dummies" by Steve Wiegand.
