Description

From Obama to Trump, from black lives matter to the rise of the alt-right – THE definitive state-of-the-nation analysis of modern America.From 2008-2016, the leader of the free world was a black man. Obama’s presidency was a watershed moment in American history. In those eight years, the political conversation around race, gender, class and wealth shifted drastically – inspiring hope but also attracting criticism and breeding discontent. That discontent ultimately led to a shocking backlash in the election of Donald Trump.In this essential book, Ta-Nehisi Coates takes stock of Obama’s eight years in power, brilliantly navigating the intersections of political, ideological and cultural perspectives. And he reflects on his own journey through these years, weaving the public with the private to create a startlingly intimate and piercingly relevant memoir.
