“The world views” of Barack Obama

Matthias Maass

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In late 2008, the US chose Barack Obama as its 44th president and, as I observed then, “[t]he world approved” (Maass, The World Views of the U.S. Presidential Election: 2008. Palgrave Macmillan, 2009). This current volume is the analytical “bookend” to the previous cooperative study. Then, the task was to capture the world views on the US presidential election. The claim was that the US-American election was indeed a global election in the sense that it was watched and evaluated across the world. Its anticipated effects globally made it in fact a global event.
