Barack Obama, America and the World

The Rapidly Dying Fear of a Unified Planet

by George Davis

Book Image Not Available
Overview
This is the first in a series of world-sourced, interactive books about President Barack Obama. Novelist/journalist George Davis writes provocative essays and uses the Internet to send them around the world. His essays along with world-sourced feedback, gives an offbeat and upbeat, but very authentic vision of race, gender, religion, and politics at the present moment in history. This work of serious creative non-fiction gives a sometimes humorous picture of Barack Obama, America, and the world more far-reaching than anything ever seen before. Readers of each book in the five-book series can submit their own feedback to be considered for publication in subsequent books. Along with reactions from many points of view and cartoons from twice Pulitzer-nominated Robert Ariail, Davis’ stylish writing gives a matchless panorama of the American and world minds at the beginning of the new century.
