When election time nears, it is often a struggle for the media and the public to have a precise idea of a candidate's true policy. Barack Obama has been accused of obfuscating issues lately, but now the record will be set straight -- in print.
On September 9 Three Rivers Press will launch Change We Can Believe In: Barack Obama's Plan to Renew America's Promise as a paperback. The announced first printing is 300,000 copies, with a list price of $13.95. (An e-book version will publish the day before.)
Written by the staff of Obama for America, with a foreword by Barack Obama, Crown says the book "will describe and explain how Senator Obama will change Washington and what that change will mean to the American people."
The second part of the book will collect seven of the candidate's speeches: including the declaration of his candidacy; his victory speech after the Iowa caucus; his speech on race in America; and his address to the people of Berlin.
