THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

'I've been wondering who might fill the intellectual void after James Baldwin died. Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates' Toni Morrison

'Searing. One of the foremost essayists on race in the West... [He] is responsible for some of the most important writing about what it is to be black in America today' Nikesh Shukla, editor of The Good Immigrant

An essential account of modern America, from Obama to Trump, from black lives matter to white supremacists rising - by the bestselling author of Between the World and Me

Obama's presidency was a watershed moment in American history. From 2008-2016, the leader of the free world was a black man. In those eight years, Obama transformed the conversation around race, gender, class and wealth - inspiring hope but also attracting criticism and breeding discontent.

In this unflinching book, Ta-Nehisi Coates takes stock of Obama's eight years in power, through such iconic, unmissable essays as 'Fear of a Black President' and 'The Case for Reparations'. His account traverses the intersections of the political, the ideological and the cultural, presenting an America in radical flux and yet still in the grip of racial injustice, class warfare and institutional conspiracy. And it reflects on the author's own journey through these eight years, charting the public through the private in passages of startling intimate and piercingly relevant memoir.

Ta-Nehisi Coates is one of our most brilliant, most fearless and most essential living writers - and his work is crucial to understanding race in America today.

Finalist for the Los Angeles Book Prize 2018
Longlisted for the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence 2018

RAVE READER REVIEWS:

'Brilliantly written, incisive, and extremely relevant. Read it with your families, use it in your classrooms, give copies to your friends' (Liz)

'Coates thinks more deeply and writes more clearly about the national tragedy and disgrace that is our collective failure to confront the legacy of White Supremacy than just about anyone... I can't recommend it highly enough' (Worddancer Redux)

'Every white person who wants to really know how it looks from 'the other side' should take on the responsibility of reading Coates' eye-opening, informative book... A must read for everyone of every colour' (Indy JV)

'A masterful understanding of how the USA really works' (shedgirl)

'If you want to know the wellsprings of racism in America - then read this book!' (David C. R. Hancock)

Recensione:

I've been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died. Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates (Toni Morrison on 'Between the World and Me')

America's latest literary wunderkind... A prodigious talent (The Sunday Times)

We are witnessing greatness. The man and his writing will be studied and revered for generations (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

[Coates is] the pre-eminent black public intellectual of his generation (The New York Times)

We Were Eight Years in Power is an essential text to understand America today (W Magazine)

Ta-Nehisi Coates is probably the only magazine writer in the world whose articles are heralded with the same fervor as the release of the latest Beyonce album (Financial Times)

A wake up call... More compelling than almost any other public voice about the state we're in. He eloquently conflates the personal, political and existential, while telling it like it is (Observer)

Coates eloquently unfurls blunt truths... To have such a voice, in such a moment, is a ray of light (USA Today)

Coates succeeds twice over, in justifying not only his account of one election, but the importance of his entire body of work (New Statesman)

Brilliant and troubling... Required reading (Vogue)
