NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Clinton and her running mate, Tim Kaine, are releasing a policy book two months before the election.

Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the 256-page book being released Sept. 6 will be called "Stronger Together" and will present a wide range of proposals from the Democratic presidential nominee. Hillary Clinton and Kaine, a Virginia senator, contributed introductions, and the book also will draw upon speeches and position papers and contributions from other campaign officials

"For the past 15 months, Hillary Clinton has laid out solutions for a wide range of issues affecting the American people. This publication gives voters the opportunity to get deeper into those ideas and the stories of everyday people that have influenced those ideas," Jonathan Karp, publisher of Simon & Schuster, said in a statement.

Simon & Schuster is Clinton's longtime publisher, releasing her memoir "Living History" and her book about her years as secretary of state, "Hard Choices." Financial terms for "Stronger Together" were not disclosed. Clinton was represented by Washington attorney Robert Barnett, whose other clients include President Barack Obama and Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton.

Campaign policy books date back at least to 1992, when Bill Clinton and running mate Al Gore released "Putting People First." The Obama campaign published "Change We Can Believe In" during the 2008 race.
