Barack Obama: The Politics of Hope

Barack Obama: The Politics of Hope by William Michael Davis
Drawing on Barack Obama's memoirs as well as diverse interviews from newspapers, television shows, radio programs, and magazines, this biography begins with his birth in Hawaii and ends with the beginning of his 2008 presidential campaign. Each chapter highlights life-defining moments and experiences. Stages of his life, education, and career are examined. Impressions from friends and colleagues help round out the factual narrative.

The overall tone is positive and pro-Obama, emphasizing his bipartisan work and his commitment to building communities and reforming government. Rumors and accusations of wrongdoings on Obama's part (drug use, parking tickets, etc.) are addressed and either confirmed or dismissed. Good for homework and for those seeking general information about Obama.
