Dreams from my father -- The audacity of hope.
Read by the author.
Dreams from my father : In New York...Barack Obama learns that his father - a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man -- has been killed in a car accident. This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey - first to a small town in Kansas, from which he retraces the migration of his mother's family to Hawaii, and then to Kenya, where he meets the African side of his family, confronts the bitter truth of his father's life, and at last reconciles his divided inheritance.
The audacity of hope : The junior senator from Illinois discusses how to transform U.S. politics, calling for a return to America's original ideals and revealing how they can address such issues as globalization and the function of religion in public life.
