A riveting, deeply personal account of history in the making from the president who inspired us to believe in the power of democracy. In the stirring, highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man searching for his identity to leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency - a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil. Obama takes readers on a compelling journey from his earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa caucus victory that demonstrated the power of grassroots activism to the night of November 4, 2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, becoming the first African American to hold the nation's highest office. Reflecting on the presidency, he offers a unique and thoughtful exploration of both the awesome reach and the limits of presidential power, as well as singular insights into the dynamics of U.S. partisan politics and international diplomacy. Obama brings readers inside the Oval Office and the White House Situation Room, and to Moscow, Cairo, Beijing, and points beyond. We are privy to his thoughts as he assembles his cabinet, wrestles with a global financial crisis, takes the measure of Vladimir Putin, overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds to secure passage of the Affordable Care Act, clashes with generals about U.S. strategy in Afghanistan, tackles Wall Street reform, responds to the devastating Deepwater Horizon blowout, and authorizes Operation Neptune's Spear, which leads to the death of Osama bin Laden. A Promised Land is extraordinarily intimate and introspective - the story of one man's bet with history. This beautifully written and powerful book captures Barack Obama's conviction that democracy is not a gift from on high but something founded on empathy and common understanding and built together, day by day.
Jens Mohr Thygesen debuterer som forfatter med denne skelsættende bog i 50-året for mordet på præsident Kennedy. Forfatteren har fra første dag vedvarende interesseret sig for mordet på præsidenten og jævnligt opdateret sin viden på området gennem 45 år. Især i de seneste 10 år er forfatteren kommet i besiddelse af så meget ny og sensationel viden, herunder originalt, billedmæssigt bevismateriale fra Dealey Plaza på dagen for attentatet, at kendsgerningerne taler deres tydelige sprog, gengivet i denne bog. Forfatteren har haft særlig tilgang til det fotografiske billedmateriale gennem sit daglige virke med billed-diagnosticering af nethindeforandringer, herunder brug af patenteret software til automatisk detektering af forandringer på nethinden. Denne software bragte ham på sporet af de sensationelle fund, der offentliggøres for første gang i denne publikation. Disse fund afslører en meget mere nuanceret og fantastisk historie, end verden hidtil har fået øjnene op for. For første gang i 50 år konfronteres offentligheden med den reelle baggrund for mordet på de Forenede Staters Præsident.
From the first woman and woman of colour elected vice president in America's history, a New York Times bestselling book about the core truths that unite us and the shared values that will see us into the future. Known for bringing a voice to the voiceless, Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris is committed to speaking the truth. The daughter of immigrants, she was raised in a community that cared deeply about social justice and, from facing prejudice at a young age, Harris never hid her passion for doing what is right. Throughout her career, from starting out as a prosecutor right up to her position as California's Attorney General, and now as a US Senator, her hallmarks have been applying a compassionate yet data-driven approach to the thorniest issues, whether it's taking on the big banks or rejecting stale 'tough on crime' rhetoric as presenting a series of false choices. Neither 'tough' nor 'soft' but smart on crime became her mantra. Being smart means learning the truths that can make us better as a community, and supporting those truths with all our might. Through the arc of her own life, Harris communicates a vision of shared struggle, purpose, and values and grapples with complex issues that affect America and the world at large, from health care and the new economy to immigration, national security, the opioid crisis, and accelerating inequality. By reckoning with the big challenges we face together, drawing on the hard-won wisdom and insight from her own career and the work of those who have most inspired her, Kamala Harris offers a master class in problem solving, crisis management, and leadership.
