Is Obama working to fulfill the dreams of Frank Marshall Davis, a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA? That question has been impossible to answer, since Davis's writings and relationship with Obama have either been deliberately obscured or dismissed as irrelevant. With Paul Kengor's work, Americans can finally weigh the evidence and decide for themselves.
