About This Item

Times Books (a division of Random House)NY, 1995. Hardcover in dustjacket. First Edition, first printing (this is the scarce 1995 edition, not to be confused with the common Crown reissue in 2007). SIGNED by President Obama on the title page. A fine unread copy in a fine dustjacket. The book was signed at Elliot Bay Bookstore in Seattle in October 2006. Protected in a mylar cover. Beautiful copy in perfect collectible condition. Photos available on request. $9000

Synopsis

Published in 1995, this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where 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.

After reading 'The Audacity of Hope' I wanted to know more about how President Obama's background formed the upbeat, altruistic, intelligent ideas in his book.After reading 'Dreams From My Father', I ordered seven copies for family and friends. 'Dreams From My Father' shed light as to how Mr. Obama was able to formulate his humane, international, open, non-judgemental globallly informed, multi-cultural view of how best to lead America. It would be a wonderful book for American Middle and High School students to read and learn from.
