The Island President is the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, a man confronting a problem greater than any other world leader has ever faced—the literal survival of his country and everyone in it. After challenging an entrenched dictator to bring democracy to the Maldives, Nasheed is now faced with an even greater challenge: as the most low-lying country in the world, a minor rise in sea level would submerge the 1200 islands of the Maldives.
