About the Book
From Los Angeles to Delhi, everyone is talking about the new President of America. Barack Obama’s election is not about the US alone, it is about changing the world. From race to religion, from the economy to environment, the question is what the Obama factor will do. This book provides deep insight into the man and his moment, the fragmented upbringing, his steely grit, and the key events in his life. It describes in detail his early life and career, his plunge into politics, his landslide victory in presidential election, his political positions on various issues, and his stand on Iraq and terrorism. Obama’s important speeches and interviews also find place in the book.
