Zeitgeschichte in BriefenWas tut ein US-Präsident, wenn er wissen will, wie es um sein Land steht? Er liest. Während seiner Amtszeit gingen täglich Zehntausende Briefe im Oval Office ein. Jeden Abend las Barack Obama zehn ausgewählte Schreiben, einige beantwortete er persönlich. Zu Wort kommen Obama-Anhänger ebenso wie politische Gegner, vom Schulkind bis zum Kriegsveteranen. Was sie bewegt: die Folgen der Finanzkrise, die geplante Gesundheitsreform, soziale Gerechtigkeit, Bildungschancen und Start-up-Ideen, das Schicksal der Soldaten im Auslandseinsatz oder schlicht Schulaufgaben. "Briefe an Obama" spiegelt die Lage der Nation in einer Zeit großen Wandels.Laskas, Jeanne MarieJeanne Marie Laskas ist Journalistin und Autorin mehrerer Sachbücher.

To Obama
13,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

One of the most important politics books of the year, To Obama is a record of a time when politics intersected with empathy. A TELEGRAPH BOOK OF THE YEAR Every day, President Obama received ten thousand letters from ordinary American citizens. Every night, he read ten of them before going to bed. In To Obama, Jeanne Marie Laskas interviews President Obama, the letter-writers themselves and the White House staff in the Office of Presidential Correspondence who were witness to the millions of pleas, rants, thank-yous and apologies that landed in the mailroom during the Obama years. There is Peggy, a patriotic grandmother who thinks the President is trying to lead the country into socialism; James, who on the morning after the 2016 election tells the President to start packing; and Dawn, who writes to say that he made it possible for a very jaded generation to begin to hope and believe in the good. They wrote to Obama out of gratitude and desperation, in their darkest times of need, with anger, fear and respect. To Obama is an intimate look at one man's relationship with the American people, and at how this extraordinary dialogue shaped an era-defining presidency.

"An insightful study of a president who listened to even his harshest critics with grace and humility."-The Washington Post NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY GLAMOUR Every evening for eight years, at his request, President Obama was given ten handpicked letters written by ordinary American citizens-the unfiltered voice of a nation-from his Office of Presidential Correspondence. He was the first president to interact daily with constituent mail and to archive it in its entirety. The letters affected not only the president and his policies but also the deeply committed people who were tasked with opening and reading the millions of pleas, rants, thank-yous, and apologies that landed in the White House mailroom. In To Obama, Jeanne Marie Laskas interviews President Obama, the letter writers themselves, and the White House staff who sifted through the powerful, moving, and incredibly intimate narrative of America during the Obama years: There is Kelli, who saw her grandfathers finally marry-legally-after thirty-five years together; Bill, a lifelong Republican whose attitude toward immigration reform was transformed when he met a boy escaping MS-13 gang leaders in El Salvador; Heba, a Syrian refugee who wants to forget the day the tanks rolled into her village; Marjorie, who grappled with disturbing feelings of racial bias lurking within her during the George Zimmerman trial; and Vicki, whose family was torn apart by those who voted for Trump and those who did not. They wrote to Obama out of gratitude and desperation, in their darkest times of need, in search of connection. They wrote with anger, fear, and respect. And together, this chorus of voices achieves a kind of beautiful harmony. To Obama is an intimate look at one man's relationship to the American people, and at a time when empathy intersected with politics in the White House. Praise for To Obama "I cried several times."-Pete Souza "Beautifully researched and written . . . A moving and inevitably nostalgic or even elegiac read, redolent of the human grace and statesmanship of the Obama presidency."-The Guardian "These stories, when you read them all together, tell the American story. They're inspirational, they're frustrating, they're angry, they're grateful, they're resilient."-Valerie Jarrett

Quarterly Essay 32: American Revolution: The Fa...
9,95 € *

Where were you when America elected Barack Obama? Kate Jennings was in New York, eyes wide open, completing her take on an amazing time: "the run-up to the election... a time when every day felt like a year and we became slightly crazed from worry but also mesmerised, unable to switch off the cable news stations, obsessively tracking the DOW, VIX, LIBOR spreads, polls in red states. So much at stake." American Revolution is a dazzling and perceptive look at the United States between hope and despair: an election-year kaleidoscope. Jennings describes how and why the US economy fell off a cliff and how an apparently endless run of primaries and an increasingly rancorous campaign culminated in a world-changing victory. She surveys the characters - Obama, Palin, McCain and the Clintons - and conveys the concepts - derivatives, bailouts and moral hazard. This is an essay that shows America in fascinating flux: it is witty and poetic, acute and evocative. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marie-Louise Walker.
