THE RISE OF BARACK OBAMA IS ONE OF THE GREAT STORIES OF THIS CENTURY: A DEFINING MOMENT FOR AMERICA, AND ONE WITH TRULY GLOBAL RESONANCE. THIS IS THE BOOK OF HIS PHENOMENAL JOURNEY TO ELECTION. THROUGH EXTENSIVE ON-THE-RECORD INTERVIEWS WITH FRIENDS AND TEACHERS, MENTORS AND MORE... DISPARAGERS, FAMILY MEMBERS AND OBAMA HIMSELF, DAVID REMNICK HAS PUT TOGETHER A NUANCED, UNEXPECTED AND MASTERLY PORTRAIT OF THE MAN WHO WAS DETERMINED TO BECOME THE FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN PRESIDENT. MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE BRIDGE ARGUES THAT OBAMA IMAGINED AND FASHIONED AN IDENTITY FOR HIMSELF AGAINST THE EPIC DRAMA OF RACE IN AMERICA. IN A WAY THAT OBAMA S OWN MEMOIRS CANNOT, IT EXAMINES BOTH THE PERSONAL AND POLITICAL ELEMENTS OF THE STORY, AND GIVES SHAPE NOT ONLY TO A DECISIVE PERIOD OF HISTORY, BUT ALSO TO THE WAY IT CRUCIALLY INFLUENCED, ANIMATED AND MOTIVATED A GIFTED AND COMPLEX MAN. SPEAKING TO HUNDREDS OF FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES, REMMICK INVESTIGATES AND CORRECTS OBAMA S OWN ACCOUT OF HIS LIFE WITH AN ASSURED AND ELEGANT TONE THAT CLARIFIES RATHER THAN ACCUSES OR UNMASKS ...600 MASTERLY PAGES - DAILY TELEGRAPH. THE PUBLISHING EVENT OF THE YEAR - OBSERVER.
