Barack Obama: The Improbable Quest

by John K. Wilson - £48.99  Paradigm (2008)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781594514760 | ISBN 10: 1594514763

Barack Obama is quickly becoming America's most popular politician, and his run for presidency has brought huge crowds at home and an unprecedented wave of international attention as well.
Much more than a biography, this book is a political tour of Obama's legislative experience as well as his ideas about race, religion and politics. Political writer John K. Wilson, author of four previous books including a study of Newt Gingrich, explores the reaction Obama has received from the left, the right, and media.
As the first presidential candidate from Generation X, Obama has generated an exciting movement of young people to support his campaign as he defines a new kind of broadly popular progressive politics. As improbable as such a quest may be, this fresh new candidate may be just the right one to bridge not only generations but ideologies that often divide.
Amid all the hype, this book provides the first in-depth look at the controversies surrounding Obama's run for the presidency and the prospects for his political future beyond the current campaign.
