We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy

by Ta-Nehisi Coates
£16.99   hardback  Penguin Books Ltd (2017)

We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy by Ta-Nehisi Coates NEW YORK TIMES #2 BESTSELLER
LONGLISTED FOR THE CARNEGIE MEDAL 2018

"I've been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died. Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates."
(Toni Morrison)
From 2008-2016, the leader of the free world was a black man. Obama's presidency reshaped America and transformed the international conversation around politics, race, equality. But it attracted criticism and bred discontent as much as it inspired hope - so much so, that the world now faces an uncertain future under a very different kind of US President.
 
In this essential new book, Ta-Nehisi Coates takes stock of the Obama era, speaking authoritatively from political, ideological and cultural perspectives, drawing a nuanced and penetrating portrait of America today.
