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.
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.
