The Audacity of Hope

Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream

(1)

Paperback edition of the book which sets out presidential hopeful Barack Obama's political vision for the future of America. With intimacy and self-deprecating humour, Obama describes his experiences as a politician, about balancing his family life and his public vocation. His search for consensus and his respect for the democratic process inform every sentence, as he discusses the importance of empathy in politics, and how the ideals of democracy can be renewed. This book has already sold over 1.3 million copies in hardcover in the US, and there is huge media and public interest in Obama.

Portrait

Barack Obama was born in Honolulu in 1961. In his early twenties he found his vocation working among poor communities on the south side of Chicago. Later he went to law school at Harvard University, where he became the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. In 1995 he published his memoir Dreams from My Father, which became a bestseller soon after it was reissued in 2004. After returning to Chicago, he was elected to the Illinois State Senate in 1996. Barack Obama delivered the keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, and later that year he was elected to the US Senate. His second book, The Audacity of Hope, was published in 2006 and became an immediate bestseller. In November 2008 Senator Obama beat John McCain to become the 44th President of the United States of America. He is married to Michelle, with whom he has two daughters, Sasha and Malia.

von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Langenzersdorf am 11.01.2012

ein sehr guter Einblick in die Gedankenwelt des US-Präsidenten als er noch Senator war. Es ist spanned zu vergleichen wo er mit seinen Ansichten als Senator nun als Präsident durchgekommen ist und wo nicht. für Politikinteressierte zu empfehlen
