God help this country!

After Obama is out of office I'm sure it will take years to restore the faith that our allies once had in this great nation.

I liked that this book focused sharply on foreign policy in the Obama Administration, and focused further on policies, decisions and actions that differ radically from preceding presidential administrations. It has long been known that this president and his administration are amateurs. They started out that way! In their zeal to turn the world on its head with the help of fashionable historical analysis, and redress real and perceived errors in U.S. foreign policy, the Obama administration has departed from major policies of all presidents of both parties. This book is a brief survey of the major departures.

More proof that our POTUS is and has been one of the most anti-American presidents this country has ever seen. This book is well written and informative and will be used as reference for years to come. After Obama is out of office I'm sure it will take years to restore the faith that our allies once had in this great nation.This should also be a warning as to what we get as voters when we vote based on emotions

This book provides useful historical background for how the USA approached global issues in the past and the treaties made with other countries and then shows how Obama has dealt with those treaties and countries. It was a nice, easy to read, summary of modern history around the globe.

This book should be of interest to all American's who are eligible to vote.

It was written in 2012, in time for the presidential election. Mr. Herschenson is an experienced man in foreign affairs going back decades to President Nixon, who opened up relations with China, and represented the US well overseas.

The US for many years was the heart of NATO and worked to keep the countries of the world as free as possible, so that their citizens could have freedom and control their own destiny. Unfortunately, President Obama has a different approach to foreign affairs, and wants to make up with countries who have not liked us in the past and to do this, has cooled relations with past faithful allies. For example, sending back the bust of Churchill immediately after her took office to the British embassy sent a message that Obama did not consider the UK a special friend as they had been for many, many years. President Bush had agreements with Poland and the Czech republic to host a Anti Ballistic Missile system and radar that could provide coverage of Iran. these agreements cost the governments of the countries some political capital. Obama unilaterally cancelled both agreements for undefined reasons, apparently to make Iran and Russia happy, as Russia thought that the missile system with about 10 missiles could be used against them.

I found this book upsetting in places, as it concentrates all of the betrayals of our foreign allies in one place.

You may learn a little bit of the current administration's foreign policy, but the views are highly biased. There's also no in-depth analysis, only piled-up one-sided citations and narrations.

Bruce Herschensohn has managed to summarize specifically why so many individuals in America today feel uneasy. His well cited book encapsulates why and how the United States is a nation at risk. Using the wisdom of past President's, from Roosevelt to Kennedy he explains how and why America is the remaining sole defender of the world and how we attained this unique role in history.

He then, carefully, pits the wisdom of some of the greatest minds in politics against the actions of Obama. His delivery is painful to read at times, simply because it shows how Obama has gone out of his way to refute and ignore "conventional wisdom."

Personally, I found the book so disturbing at many junctures, that I had to put it down and resume reading after I had calmed down.

If you appreciate rationale thinking and well cited literature, you will find this book quite enjoyable. It also might just help you explain the folly of Obama at cocktail parties.
