Description - Power in Words by MARY FRANCES BERRY

President Obama's words are one of the lasting legacies of his presidential campaign and administration.

InPower in Words,distinguished historian and civil rights activist Mary Frances Berry and former presidential speechwriter Josh Gottheimer introduce Obama's most memorable speeches, from his October 2002 speech against the war in Iraq and his November 2008 election-night victory speech to "A More Perfect Union," his March 2008 response to the Reverend Wright controversy, and lesser-known but revealing speeches, such as one given in Nairobi, Kenya, in August 2006.

For each speech, Berry and Gottheimer add a rich introduction that includes political analysis, provides insight and historical context, and features commentary straight from the speechwriters themselves-including Jon Favreau, Obama's chief speechwriter, and several other Obama campaign writers. Compelling and enduring,Power in Wordsdelivers the behind-the-scenes account of Obama's rhetorical legacy and is a collection to relish for years to come.
