A Benchmark Book?,
This review is from: Obama Does Globalistan (Paperback)
Mr. Escobar likes to call himself The Roving Eye. This description might be off as it implies a wide, ambling view. There is nothing ambling about Escobar's stiletto-sharp observations, which, I'm sure make, many people in power nervous. In Obama Does Globalistan, the author, a frequent critic of U.S. foreign policy, reveals his optimism about Obama and gives the new president the benefit of the doubt. I wonder if Escobar plans to use this essay as a measuring benchmark in a year or so.
For anyone interested in foreign affairs and the U.S. position in the world, Obama Does Globalistan is a must read.
