It may not be official, but it is real. As we listen online to McCain conceding, it dawns on us that this epic campaign is finally, almost unbelievably, over. Barack Obama is the new President of the United States.
Before he was President, or even Senator, Barack Obama penned two wonderful books. Both are published by Text. Now is the perfect time to read up on the new leader of the world’s most powerful nation.
In this bestselling book Obama describes the importance of empathy in politics, his hopes for a different America with different policies, and how the ideals of its democracy can be renewed.
Before Barack Obama became a politician he was, among other things, a writer. This is his masterpiece: a refreshing, revealing portrait of a young man asking the big questions about identity and belonging.
Text Publishing congratulates Barack Obama on this historic victory.
