about

This timely work associates Barack Obama's election with a reemergence of Emerson's great Dream of this new yet unapproachable America. It's the first book to connect Emerson's rousing teachings for individuals with ideas behind America's founding and our promise as a nation. Geldard shows how-in contrast to the American Dream-Emerson's Dream of America evokes something deeper, more fundamental, and infinitely more adequate to our immediate challenges as a nation.
