about this book

Echoing themes he sounded in his extraordinary keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, Senator Barack Obama speaks in this book to Americans of all stripes who are weary of U.S. politics today, and who long for something rooted in the faith and decency of the American Dream.

In LA AUDACIA DE LA ESPERANZA, Obama draws on his experience as a senator and lawyer, a professor and father, a Christian and a skeptic, to illuminate the greatness of America’s original ideals--and to remind us how vital it is to keep them before us. Along the way he explores such charged topics as globalization, the notion of American exceptionalism, the function of religion in public life, and the struggle to find a shared language in a nation torn by differences. While sharing his personal views on family, faith, and values, he argues that our very survival depends on finding common ground.

Pundits and voters alike have hailed Senator Obama as a man of uncommon vision in an age of partisan opportunism. LA AUDACIA DE LA ESPERANZA is truly a book of transforming power, a foundation for those who long for a politics that acknowledges the nobility and complexity of our lives.
