Barack Obama in World Politics

President-elect Barack Obama's campaign for the American presidency seemed 
to have generated more global interest than any other national presidential 
election in the history of contemporary world politics. From the estimated 
two hundred thousand people who converged on Berlin, Germany, to hear his 
address, to President Nicolas Sarkozy, Prime Minister Gordon Brown, former 
President Nelson Mandela, Prime Minister Raila Odinga, President Jalal 
Talabani, President Hamid Karzai, former President Fidel Castro, and 
President Hugo Chavez, unrelenting drumbeats of change resounded throughout 
the 2008 election campaigns. In his face, language, and politics the global 
community sees in Obama the inevitable multicultural hybridity of the 
future. Scholars and the general public are invited to submit essays on any 
aspects of the life and work of the President-elect Barack Obama for a book 
that is scheduled for immediate publication, entitled "Barack Obama in World
