Produktbeschreibung

A deeply moving memoir about the year that would forever change both a family and a country 'Promise Me, Dad is Joe Biden's poignant account of the most challenging year of his vice-presidency and the second most difficult year of his life. More than anything else, the book is a reminder of the importance of politics: how much elections can change the trajectory of a country, and how different America has become one year after Donald Trump was elected president.' Guardian

'Poignant, instructive and deeply affecting.' Irish Independent

'A backstage drama, honest, raw and rich in detail. People who have lost someone will genuinely take comfort from what he has to say . . . These flashes of vulnerability are part of what makes Promise Me, Dad memorable; so, too, are the small, tender interactions between Biden and his dying son.' New York Times

'Biden splices a heartbreaking story with an election story and a foreign affairs story. And in so doing, he offers something for everyone, no matter which strand draws you in.' New York Times Book Review

Autoreninfo

President-elect Joe Biden won the most votes of any US presidential candidate in history when he won the 2020 election with his running mate Kamala Harris. He represented Delaware for thirty-six years in the US Senate before serving as 47th Vice President of the United States from 2009 to 2017. As the Vice President, Joe Biden addressed important issues facing the nation and represented America abroad, traveling over 1.2 million miles to more than fifty countries. He convened sessions of the President's Cabinet, led interagency efforts, and worked with Congress in his fight to raise the living standards of middle-class Americans, reduce gun violence, address violence against women and end cancer as we know it.

Biden continues his legacy of expanding opportunity for all with the creation of the Biden Foundation, the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania and the Biden Domestic Policy Institute at the University of Delaware. He is the author of Promises to Keep: On Life and Politics and the memoir Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose.
