SPRINGFIELD – Author Paul Street will sign copies of his book, “The Empire’s New Clothes: Barack Obama and the Real World of Power” at Barnes and Noble, 240 Route 22 West, Springfield, from 7-9 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 20.
“The Empire’s New Clothes” is a sequel to Street’s “Barack Obama and the Future of American Politics.” It documents and assesses Obama’s newly emergent record on domestic and foreign politics against his original agenda for change. Although mainstream journalists have noted discrepancies between Obama’s original vision and reality, Paul Street uniquely measures Obama’s record against the expectations of the truly progressive agenda many of his supporters expected him to follow.
