Barack Obama and the American Dream as Depicted in Some of His Famous Speeches GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Research Paper (Pre-University) from the year 2012 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, printed single-sided, grade: 1,5, - (Gymnasium am Markt Bünde), language: English, abstract: In 2009 Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States. He fascinated millions of people all over the world and even in Germany people recited his motto Yes we can . He inspired a nation. Obama and his speeches were so electrifying that a lot of people spoke of a national obsession with Senator Barack Obama.I wondered how he managed to fill the people with enthusiasm. He was always speaking about the American Dream. So I asked myself: What is this American Dream; which of its values and ideas are so fascinating that they inspired the nation, and how are they influenced by Obama using them in his speeches? Does Obama just use them for tactical reasons because they are so popular? In order to answer these questions it is at first necessary to define the term American Dream and to understand the history and meaning of its ideas and values. Then I want to look at Obama's biography, if there are any hints that show his interest in the American Dream and what influence does it have on his interpretation of the American Dream.For the analysis of his interpretation of the American Dream I have chosen a selection of Obama s most striking speeches up to April 2009 . These speeches show how he managed to inspire many citizens. Because I want to illustrate all of the six fundamental concepts of the American Dream I scanned the whole collection for striking phrases exemplifying his use of these ideas. They will show his specific interpretation of the American Dream.

Roots of Obama's Rage Regnery Publishing Inc

From The Roots of Obama's Rage We are today living out the script for America and the world that was dreamt up not by Obama but by Obama's father. How do I know this? Because Obama says so himself. Reflect for a moment on the title of his book: it's not Dreams of My Father but rather Dreams from My Father. In other words, Obama is not writing a book about his father's dreams; he is writing a book about the dreams that he got from his father. Think about what this means. The most powerful country in the world is being governed according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s-a polygamist who abandoned his wives, drank himself into stupors, and bounced around on two iron legs (after his real legs had to be amputated because of a car crash caused by his drunk driving). This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anti-colonial ambitions, is now setting the nation's agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. The son is the one who is making it happen, but the son is, as he candidly admits, only living out his father's dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is being governed by a ghost. Dinesh D'Souza is the president of The King's College in New York City. He is a former White House domestic policy analyst and research scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. His bestselling books include Illiberal Education, The End of Racism, and What's So Great About America. Websites:,

Performance of Politics - 2826841717

Performance of Politics Oxford University Press Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Contemporary observers of politics in America often reduce democracy to demography, and presidential elections are no exception. But do differences in class, gender, race, and religion really determine the vote? The Performance of Politics develops a new way of looking at democratic struggles for big-time power and it explains what happened, and why, during the 2008 Presidential campaign in the United States. Through a series of simple but telling concepts about meaning and performance in public life, illustrated with vivid examples drawn from a range of media coverage, participant observation at a Camp Obama, and interviews with leading political journalists, Jeffrey Alexander argues that images, emotion, and performance are the central features of the battle for power. While these features have been largely overlooked by pundits, they are, in fact, the primary foci of political actors. Winning depends on creating images so that candidates can become heroes. Obama and McCain carefully constructed heroic self-images for their campaigns and the successful performance of those representations characterized not only each candidate's actual rallies, and not only their media messages but also the ground game. Money and organization facilitate the ground game, but they do not determine it. Emotion, images, and performance do. In other words, demography isn't destiny and political parties can't always delivery the vote. Though an untested Senator and the underdog in his own party, Obama, through his moving performances, succeeded in casting himself as the hero and McCain the anti-hero, as the only candidate fit to lead in challenging times. Drawing on these themes, Alexander then reveals several periods of shifting public opinion and isolates the drama of Obama's celebrity, the effect of Sarah Palin on the race, and the emerging financial crisis through an engaging narrative that conveys the immediacy and excitement of the final months of the historic 2008 presidential campaign. "Jeffrey C. Alexander's intriguing argument in The Performance of Politics, a meticulous review of the 2008 campaign, is that his fellow sociologists have overemphasized impersonal social forces at the expense of the theater of public life - the way politicians perform 'symbolically.' It's a prosaic call for a more poetic (or at least aesthetic) understanding of politics. Ideology must connect viscerally, or it doesn't connect at all." -The New York Times Book Review "The Performance of Politics is replete with sociological insights...Alexander presents original theoretical arguments on the democratic struggle for power in America, and in the process provides a new explanation for Obama's historic victory...Alexander's argument that the democratic struggle for power is about becoming a collective representation is persuasive, so too is the way he uses this argument to examine the successful and failed performances of candidates on both the primary and general elections...The most compelling part of this engaging book is Alexander's brilliant chapter on the 'Celebrity Metaphor.' Rarely have I read an analysis of a social event by a sociologist that had me so enthralled...This is a brilliant book. '" -William Julius Wilson, Contemporary Sociology 'That politics is about drama and unpredictable, surprising moments is one of the central arguments in Jeffrey Alexander's remarkable analysis of Barack Obama's presidential campaign ...By employing the tools of cultural sociology, Alexander writes about the most recent US presidential campaign as if it were a modern form of the Iliad...Sometimes the best sociology is that which reveals itself through brilliant analysis and storytelling.'--Times Higher Education Supplement 'In an extraordinary analysis of real breadth and depth, Jeffrey Alexander challenges us to re-think Barack Obama's election as president. Reflect on the performance that takes place on a grand stage, Alexander advises, and we'll see the big picture.'-Larry J. Sabato, author of The Year of Obama 'This is a work of dazzling brilliance and imagination. It sparkles with new insights that go well beyond standard interpretations of electoral politics. Especially to be treasured is its keen understanding of civil society and the importance of moral meaning and symbolism in public life.' -Robert Wuthnow, Princeton University 'Revealing himself to be de Tocqueville's true heir, Jeffrey Alexander draws a sweeping and daring portrait of the heroes, villains, fools, and mavericks who peopled the 2008 American presidential campaign. The Performance of Politics is riveting. '-Robin Wagner-Pacifici, Swarthmore College

Kobieca determinacja w starciu z okrucieństwem totalitaryzmu.Rankiem 31 stycznia 2009 roku pracująca w Iranie amerykańska dziennikarka Roxana Saberi została wyciągnięta z domu przez czterech mężczyzn i brutalnie aresztowana. Agenci irańskiego wywiadu oskarżyli ją o szpiegostwo na rzecz Stanów Zjednoczonych. W pokazowym, absurdalnym procesie, który trafił na pierwsze strony gazet całego świata, skazano ją na karę ośmiu lat więzienia. Miała ją odbyć w okrutnym teherańskim więzieniu Evin ? miejscu, skąd każdy wychodzi zmaltretowany psychicznie, fizycznie bądź nie wychodzi wcale...Saberi rozpoczęła brawurową walkę o wolność. W jej sprawie interweniowali Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, liczne organizacje międzynarodowe, a także tysiące poruszonych jej losem ludzi, którzy niestrudzenie protestowali u irańskich władz przeciwko uwięzieniu dziennikarki.Między światami to poruszająca i przerażająca historia uwięzienia młodej, niewinnej kobiety w samym środku totalitarnego piekła. To także opowieść o heroicznej walce o sprawiedliwość, godność i respektowanie praw człowieka oraz szczere świadectwo życia w Iranie ? kraju fascynujących kontrastów.Dla mnie, dziennikarki, ta książka to opowieść o tym, co najważniejsze. O prawdzie.- Katarzyna Montgomery, redaktor naczelna ?Zwierciadła?Wstrząsająca opowieść o reżimie, dla którego prawda nie ma najmniejszego znaczenia i w którym walczącego o nią człowieka oskarża się o szpiegostwo i skazuje na wieloletnie więzienie.- Renata Kim, ?Newsweek?Między światami to poruszające świadectwo bezkompromisowej walki o godność i wolność. Walki, której często niestety nie dostrzegamy, ale za którą wiele osób na całym świecie gotowych jest zapłacić każdą cenę.- Przemysław Henzel, dziennikarz Onet.plRoxana Saberi daje świadectwo odwagi, rozliczając się z traumą, której doświadczyła w więzieniu w Teheranie. Pokazuje absurdalność i okrucieństwo systemu. Razem z nią przyłączamy się do apelu o pilnie potrzebną pomoc dla wszystkich osób doznających niesprawiedliwości w Iranie.- Draginja Nadaždin, dyrektorka Amnesty International PolskaAutorka ? na podstawie własnych doświadczeń ? obnaża paranoję irańskiego reżimu politycznego, którego przedstawiciele inwigilują i poddają represjom nie tylko goszczących w kraju cudzoziemców, ale także własnych obywateli. Pomimo tego Iran w książce Saberi to kraj piękny, urokliwy i pociągający, choć niebezpieczny i pełen kontrastów.- Fundacja FeminotekaNajbardziej przejmujące fragmenty tej książki dotyczą wewnętrznej walki autorki. Saberi jest rozdarta między prawdą a pragnieniem wolności. I choć stoi w obliczu śmierci, wybiera prawdę.- Roger Cohen, ?The New York Times?

Opis - Doskonały menedżer porusza się we wszystkich obszarach rzeczywistości biznesowej. Musi radzić sobie z komunikacją, być kreatywny i stać na czele niczym prawdziwy lider. Musi także właściwie motywować pracowników i rozwiązywać problemy, ale to nie wszystko. Naprawdę świetny menedżer przeistoczy zbiór przypadkowo dobranych pracowników w prawdziwie zgraną grupę ludzi mocno zaangażowanych w działania firmy i autentycznie przekonanych o celowości własnych poczynań. Nie osiągnie tego efektu za pomocą zręcznych zabiegów dyplomatycznych. Jest to możliwe jedynie dzięki zbudowaniu znakomitych relacji z podwładnymi - relacji opartych na zaufaniu, fascynacji, właściwym podziale obowiązków i wykorzystaniu skrzętnie skrywanych przed otoczeniem przeróżnych talentów poszczególnych osób. Tylko tak można zbudować prawdziwy zespół marzeń. Jeśli czujesz, że jako menedżer osiągnąłeś już pewien poziom skuteczności, ale wciąż brakuje Ci umiejętności inspirowania ludzi i prowadzenia ich do zdobywania kolejnych, pozornie tylko niebosiężnych celów, koniecznie sięgnij po tę książkę. Znajdziesz w niej praktyczne i sprawdzone informacje dotyczące budowania więzi, włączania pracowników w swoje projekty i wywoływania w nich entuzjazmu, a także wyzwalania ich kreatywności i pomysłowości. Nauczysz się wdrażać strategie, dzięki którym podwładni uznają Cię za wspaniałego szefa i z pełnym przekonaniem będą dla Ciebie pracować, a ponadto dowiesz się nieco więcej o unikaniu konfliktów.

Robert Gates - Duty EBURY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

'As I look back, there is a parallel theme to my years at war: love. By that I mean the love - there is no other word for it - I came to feel for the troops, and the overwhelming sense of personal responsibility I developed for them. So much so that it would shape some of my most significant decisions and positions.' When Robert M. Gates received a call from the White House, he thought he'd long left Washington politics behind: After working for six presidents in both the CIA and the National Security Council, he was happily serving as president of Texas A&M University. But when he was asked to help a nation mired in two wars and to aid the troops doing the fighting, he answered what he felt was the call of duty. Robert Gates was US Secretary of Defense from 2006 to 2011 serving under both George Bush and Barack Obama. Before that he was Director of the CIA. This is his candid and revealing account of US military engagement in Iraq and Afghanistan, where Gates oversaw the controversial 'surge' of US troops in both countries. As well as this, he also provides commentary on the situations in Syria, Iran, Israel and North Korea and details behind the scenes meetings with Bush, Cheney, Rice, Obama and other major political figures. Mr. Gates is the only Secretary of Defense to serve under both a Republican and a Democratic president, and in Duty he provides an unsparing, full accounting of his tenure.

Last Chance I B TAURIS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

As Barack Obama seeks to chart a new course in American foreign policy, one of the English language media's most respected authorities on the Arab world, David Gardner, addresses the controversial but urgent question: why is the Middle East so dysfunctional? And what can be done about it? Clear-sighted, never flinching from unpalatable truths, Gardner draws on his acute grasp of history and decades of experience covering the region to look at why conflict, despotism and sectarianism continue to flourish in the Arab world whilst as they decline everywhere else. The 'Middle East exception' is, he argues, a product of the West's own making. By supporting tyrants, fueling the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and demonizing democratically elected Islamist parties, the West in general but specifically America has incubated a region inherently resistant to economic and political reform, and suppurating with resentment. As the Obama administration plans its Middle East policy, Gardner argues for nothing less than a total reappraisal of what realpolitik means. The traditional shibboleths: support Israel, mollify the Saudis, suppress Islamism, simply will not do in the 21st century, he argues. Both an introduction to the modern Middle East and an impassioned polemic, "Last Chance" is essential reading for anyone concerned with the future of the region. 'This book should be in the hand baggage of every one of President Obama's Middle East negotiators' - Jon Snow, Channel 4.

Stealing America's Future makes a comparison of today's America to late 19th Century Europe using two rare books, The Conventional Lies of our Civilization by Nordau, describing Europe's elitist leadership, and The Soviets at Work by Lenin, outlining the Russian Revolution as it took place. Not a part of the discussion of history, both provide frightening detail about the nuances of the geopolitics of Europe, circa 1900, that relate to today's America. Using heartwarming family stories, humorous anecdotes, incisive criticism, and cold factual analysis, it describes how progressive liberalism, with its attempts at social engineering and excessive permissiveness, has brought social and economic disaster to America. David Letterman relating to Sarah Palin "I fear he sees her as more man than he will ever be and more woman than he will ever get." Bill Maher relating to Michelle Obama " only conclusion about Maher is that he is just another angry little bully who is fearful of powerful women..." Is it time to separate the North American Continent into a federation of smaller component nations better reflecting the economics and ethos of these individual component nations, yet having our common defense as the only connection or do we need to get back to the Constitution our founders gave to us? Raised in a poor farm family in Pawnee County, Nebraska, Dr. Steiner had the ethics of hard work and family values as his primary guide post to succeed. Working his way through college and graduating from the University of Nebraska in 1973, he located his dental practice in an economically impacted area of Omaha, Nebraska where he also worked in a public health clinic, developing insights with regard to what motivates people. He is a pilot and an accomplished martial artist, attaining several black belts. He was featured in a Sun-Up Interview by the Omaha World Herald's, Robert McMorris, and was also featured in an interview by William Rush in the League of Human Dignity paper, where Sensei Steiner outlined his martial arts training strategies for handicapped persons. He was called by Charles Kuralt to panel a discussion of the Gulf Crisis for CBS News before the Gulf War.

Excerpt: William Franklin "Billy" Graham, Jr. KBE (born November 7, 1918) is an American evangelical Christian evangelist. As of April 25, 2010, when he met with Barack Obama, Graham has spent personal time with twelve United States Presidents dating back to Harry S. Truman, and is number seven on Gallup's list of admired people for the 20th century. He is a Southern Baptist. He rose to celebrity status as his sermons were broadcast on radio and television. It is said that Graham has preached the Gospel in person to more people than any other person in history. According to his staff, as of 1993 more than 2.5 million people have "stepped forward at his crusades to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior", many to the altar call song "Just As I Am". As of 2008, Graham's lifetime audience, including radio and television broadcasts, topped 2.2 billion. He was born November 7, 1918 to William Franklin Graham I (1888-1962) and Morrow Coffey (1892-1981), on a dairy farm near Charlotte, North Carolina. Graham was raised in the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church by his parents. In 1933, when Prohibition in the United States ended, Graham's father forced Graham and his sister Katherine to drink beer until they vomited, which created an aversion, in both of them, to alcohol and drugs. According to the Billy Graham Center, Graham was converted in 1934 at age 16 during a series of revival meetings in Charlotte which were led by evangelist Mordecai Ham. However, he was turned down for membership in a local youth group because he was "too worldly". He was persuaded to go see Ham at the urging of one of the employees, Albert McMakin, on the Graham farm. After graduating from Sharon High School in May 1936, Graham attended Bob Jones College (now Bob Jones University), then located in Cleveland, Tennessee, for one semester but found it too legalistic in both coursework and rules. At this time, he was influenced and inspired by Pastor Charley Young from Eastport...

In Back to Work, Bill Clinton addresses the urgent economic challenges facing the United States and offers a plan to get America "back into the future business." He details how to get out of the current economic crisis and lay a foundation for long-term prosperity, offering specific recommendations on how to put people back to work, increase bank lending and corporate investment, double exports, restore the manufacturing base, and create new businesses. He supports President Obama's emphasis on green technology, saying that a change in the way we produce and consume energy is the strategy most likely to spark a fastgrowing economy and enhance national security. Clinton says that it is strong economy and smart government working together that will restore prosperity and progress. He demonstrates that whenever the US gives in to the temptation to blame government for its problems, it loses its commitment to shared prosperity, balanced growth, financial responsibility, and investment in the future. Some things have to be done together. For example, he says, "Our ability to compete in the twenty-first century is dependent on our willingness to invest in infrastructure: we need faster broadband, a state-of-the-art national electrical grid, modernized water and sewer systems, and the best airports, trains, roads, and bridges. "There is no evidence that we can succeed in the twenty-first century with an antigovernment strategy," writes Clinton, "with a philosophy grounded in 'You're on your own' rather than 'We're all in this together.'" Clinton believes that conflict between government and the private sector has proved to be remarkably good politics, but it has produced bad policies, giving us a weak economy with few jobs, growing income inequality and poverty, and a decline in our competitive position. In the real world, cooperation works much better than conflict, and "we need victories in the real world." "I wrote this book because I love my country and I'm concerned about our future," he writes. "As I often said when I first ran for President in 1992, America at its core is an idea - the idea that no matter who you are or where you're from, if you work hard and play by the rules, you'll have the freedom and opportunity to pursue your own dreams and leave your kids a country where they can chase theirs."

Bush's Wars Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

From journalistic accounts like Fiasco and Imperial Life in the Emerald City to insider memoirs like Jawbreaker and Three Cups of Tea , the books about America's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan could fill a library. But each explores a narrow slice of a whole: two wars launched by a single president as part of a single foreign policy. Now noted historian Terry H. Anderson examines them together, in a single comprehensive overview. Shortly after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush told advisor Karl Rove, "I am here for a reason, and this is how we're going to be judged." Anderson provides this judgment in this sweeping, authoritative account of Bush's War on Terror and his twin interventions. He begins with historical surveys of Iraq and Afghanistan known respectively as "the improbable country" and "the graveyard of empires," and he examines U.S. policies toward those and other nations in the Middle East from the 1970s to 2000. Then Anderson focuses on the Bush Administration, carrying us through such events as the terrorist's attacks of 9/11, the invasion of Afghanistan and the siege of Tora Bora, the "Axis of Evil" speech, the invasion of Iraq and capture of Baghdad, and the eruption of insurgency in Iraq. He ranges from RPGs slamming into Abrams tanks to cabinet meetings, vividly portraying both soldiers in the field and such policymakers as Dick Cheney and Condoleezza Rice. Anderson describes the counter-insurgency strategy embodied by the "surge" in Iraq, and the simultaneous revival of the Taliban. He concludes with an assessment of the prosecution of the wars in the first years of Barack Obama's presidency. Carefully researched and briskly narrated, Bush's Wars provides the single-volume, balanced history that we have been waiting for.

"Making the Future" is the latest collection of essays from Noam Chomsky, one of our most vital and provocative voices of political dissent. Taking up the thread from 2007's "Interventions", these penetrating and compelling articles examine numerous topics, including the financial crisis, Obama's presidency, WikiLeaks and the on-going conflicts in the Middle East. Restating and refining his commitment to democracy and finding inspiration in the popular uprisings of the Arab Spring, "Making the Future" is Chomsky's fiercely-argued and timely comment on a fast-changing world. Praise for Noam Chomsky: "Chomsky is one of a small band of individuals fighting a whole industry. And that makes him not only brilliant, but heroic". (Arundhati Roy). "Noam Chomsky is a global phenomenon ...he may be the most widely read American voice on foreign policy on the planet today". ("New York Times Book Review"). "Noam Chomsky is an inspiration all over the world - to millions I suspect - for the simple reason that he is a truth-teller on an epic scale". (John Pilger). Noam Chomsky is the author of numerous bestselling political books, including "Hegemony or Survival", "Failed States", "Interventions", "What We Say Goes", "Hopes and Prospects" and "Gaza in Crisis", all of which are published by Hamish Hamilton/Penguin. He is an Institute Professor (Emeritus) in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at MIT, and is widely credited with having revolutionized modern linguistics.
