Summary
Obama's speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention instantly catapulted him into the national spotlight and led to his election four years later as America's first African-American president. Garrow has created a vivid portrait that reveals not only the people and forces that shaped the future president but also the ways in which he used those influences to serve his larger aspirations
Summary
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Bearing the Cross presents a definitive account of Barack Obama's life before his presidency, sharing insights into his formative years in Honolulu and Jakarta, his influential associates and his community work in Chicago
