應許之地—歐巴馬回憶錄 A Promised Land Chinese
HK$283.00
第一位美國非裔總統,他創造歷史、改變世界、也完成自我,更於任內獲諾貝爾和平獎——在世界動盪、時局紛亂的當下,最需要聆聽他的故事,汲取他的力量巴拉克‧歐巴馬(Barack Obama)在備受期待、激勵人心的回憶錄第一卷中。他從尋求自我認同的年輕人到當上自由世界的領袖,包括他的政治養成和第一屆總統任期內的重大時刻,充滿戲劇性轉變與動盪。回顧總統任內,他以獨到而周延的觀點,探索了總統權的範圍與侷限,也以獨特見解,剖析美國涇渭分明的政黨政治以及國際外交上的折衝。歐巴馬帶領讀者深入白宮橢圓形辦公室以及戰情室,進入莫斯科、開羅、北京等地。透過本書,我們能一窺其思路,包括他籌組內閣時的全盤考量、苦思如何解決全球金融危機、忖度俄羅斯總統普丁的盤算、克服看似無法踰越的逆境讓〈平價醫療法〉(Affordable Care Act)在國會闖關、為了美國在阿富汗的戰略與將領起衝突、落實華爾街改革、因應災難性的墨西哥灣油井爆炸、授權狙擊賓拉登的「海神之矛行動」等等。本書出奇地私密並充滿內省,講述他敢於翻轉歷史的故事,以及他這個社區工作者的信仰在世界的舞台備受考驗。歐巴馬非常坦率,告訴我們他以美國黑人的身分競選公職,承載著擁抱「希望與求變」的世代對他的期許,以及做出高風險決策時面臨的道德挑戰,他是如何平衡並兼顧三者。他大方吐露海內外反對他的聲音與勢力,生活在白宮對他妻女的影響,也毫不畏懼地揭露他對自我的懷疑與失望。然而他堅信,在美國這個仍在進行中的偉大實驗裡,進步始終是可能的。這本優美而有力量的書記錄了歐巴馬的信念,民主不是天上掉下來的禮物,而是在同理心和共識的基礎上,靠大家攜手每天一起努力而成。 ISBN : 9789865519254 作者 : 巴拉克.歐巴馬 Barack Obama 譯者:  陳琇玲 商品語言 : 中文/繁體 出版社 : 商業周刊 出版日期 : 2020年11月19日...
