December 2008 Book of the Month

"At the beginning of 2004, Barack Obama was an almost unknown Illinois state legislator and a candidate for the U.S. Senate. Today, Obama's straightforward policy recommendations, message of hope and inclusion, and charismatic style have propelled him to the highest office in the nation.

Written by Martin Dupuis and Keith Boeckelman, this book examines Barack Obama's meteoric rise to fame and what it means for American politics. The roots of President-elect Obama's politics and presidential campaign strategy are traced in this detailed political biography, ascending from his successful run in 1996 to represent Chicago's South Side in the Illinois Senate, through his partial term as the junior U.S. senator from Illinois beginning in 2004, to his campaign for the presidency."
