His articles, books, and speeches are replete with references to America's past and how that relates to the present he sees and the future he envisions. Exploring Obama's own words, Barack Obama: American Historian reconstructs his narrative and examines his interpretation of American history from colonial times to the present-a history of the struggles to fulfil the promises of the nation's founding documents. Steven Sarson shows how Obama sees history as beginning with the "common creed" of equality and liberty proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence and in the "more perfect union" created by the Constitution. After analysing Obama's colonies, revolution, and early nation, the book examines his interpretations of slavery and the civil war, segregation and civil rights, economy and society, and war and foreign policy. An Epilogue explores how Obama personifies the American dream through the stories of individuals, including his own.

A unique and fascinating take on the past and how we interpret it, it will appeal to all students and scholars of American history and historiography as well as anyone interested in Obama's presidency.

    Very well written. An academic read but an insightful and well organized one. Highly recommended for those interested in history as well as the connection between the American Revolution, American Civil War, and Obama's 2004 Dem Nat' Convention Speech and 2008 Inauguration Speech. Briefer attention offered to Obama speeches during and at the close of his Presidency. Highly recommended, readers should prepare to invest time, effort, and energy while reading. Very well written.

    Leitura repetitiva, absolutamente focada na história dos EUA, interessante mas um pouco entediante. Recomendo somente se você tem interesse pela história deste país e/ou sobre alguns ideais de liberdade deste povo.
