Promotional Information

The authors chart the rise of Barack Obama, the senator with aspirations to the toughest job in the world, but stop short of his historic victory. As a curtain-raiser to the prospective president, this is a valuable book, written in an engagingly lucid style and filled with fascinating insights into voting patters, fundraising, race relations, the role of the media in US politics and the arrival of a completely inexperienced face in the White House. The Calcutta Telgraph November 21, 2008

About the Author

Martin Dupuis is assistant dean of the Burnett Honors College and associate professor of political science at the University of Central Florida. Keith Boeckelman is professor of political science at Western Illinois University and Research Fellow at the Illinois Institute for Rural Affairs.

Reviews

Presidential candidate Obama is the only African American in the U.S. Senate. Here, Dupuis (political science, Univ. of Central Florida) and Boeckelman (politics, Western Illinois Univ.) show how his stirring speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2004, his policy recommendations, and his charismatic style have put him in the national spotlight.
