Book Title: Witness to Greatness: The Consequential Presidency of Barack Obama in Perspective.
Book Synopsis: It is the very stuff of legend. A man from the bottom of the American caste emerges, captures the nation 's imagination and gets elected president, the first non-white ever to lead an overwhelmingly white nation. Seismic, epic and biblical, Obama 's story is an improbable tale of the rejected stone as cornerstone “ of Moses as pharaoh. Notwithstanding that his political foes waged œa cold uncivil civil war against him, his achievements are impressive and historic. Citing the historic majesty of his many achievements including saving a moribund economy and legitimizing American democracy, the author argues that Obama is a great president.
