Barack Obama, the New Face of American Politics 2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
NicholasOyugiOdhiambo More than 1 year ago
The first in a series that purposes to explore the impact of minorities¿ and women¿s involvement in American politics, this volume rightly features an individual who, even by the time of the book¿s publication on December 27th 2008 ,which was way before the end of the 08¿ democratic primaries, already showed promise as the candidate to beat at both the party nomination and the general election level.
Decidedly biographical the books describes and explores the political life of now presidential-elect Barack Obama from the time of his successfully run for the state senate in 1996 (chapter one), through his drama-filled campaign for the US Senate seat vacated by Senator Peter Fitzgerald (chapters two, three, four, five and six) and subsequent decisive victory over Alan Keyes (chapter seven), to his announcement of candidacy for the President of the United States on February 12, 2007, in front of the old state capital in Springfield, Illinois.
The book will impress and benefit anyone who is interested in tracing or re-reading President Obama¿s life story and accomplishments. It also offers insights into Obama¿s thinking and philosophy on issues such as the role of government and the meaning of the American Dream through its analysis of his speeches and its discussion of his voting pattern in the senate.
