ABSTRACT
The article looks at the issues of neutrality and partiality confronting indexers of political memoirs. The article also discussed a comparison of indexing styles to the autobiographies of three former political leaders. They are Tony Blair of Great Britain, George W. Bush of the U.S. and John Howard of Australia. Being an autobiography and serving as a political discourse are the two features that make a political memoir. Authorial attitudes and intrusive indexers are the two significant sources of bias and subjectivity in indexes. For indexers of political and social issues, they should be aware of the cultural and geographical preferences in language use.
