At the heart of The Audacity of Hope is Senator Obama’s vision of how his country can move beyond its divisions to tackle concrete problems. He examines the growing economic insecurity of American families and the racial and religious tensions within the body politic, and considers the nature of threats from outside America’s borders.Offering personal reflections on values and ideals that have led him to public life, some thoughts on the ways that the current political discourse unnecessarily divides people, Barack Obama offers his own best assessment – based on his experience as a senator, and lawyer, husband and father, Christian and sceptic – of ways that politics can be ground into the notion of common good.By returning to the principles that gave birth to the US Constitution, he says, Americans have a chance to repair a political process that is broken, and restore to working order a government that has fallen dangerously out of touch with millions of ordinary Americans.
The Audacity Of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream by OBAMA BARACK
The Audacity of Hope is Barack Obama’s call for a new kind of politics—a politics that builds upon those shared understandings that pull us together as Americans. Lucid in his vision of America’s place in the world, refreshingly candid about his family life and his time in the Senate, Obama here sets out his political convictions and inspires us to trust in the dogged optimism that has long defined us and that is our best hope going forward.
