Editorial Reviews

Review

“Derek Chollet offers a well-argued and convincing defence of President Obama's approach to the world. Chollet is an example of the kind of scholar-policymaker that is such a feature of American statecraft…Chollet's detailed and knowledgeable discussion of the policy options provides a revealing picture of the nature and complexity of the US's policy dilemmas.”—Gideon Rachman, Financial Times

“[Derek Chollet] is likely to be the closest anyone will come to understanding the thinking behind a foreign policy that has many critics…”—The Economist

“A measured insider's account of President Barack Obama's foreign policy…[Chollet] relies on his heavyweight credentials and personal perspective in a spirited, thoughtful defense of how Obama responded to both George W. Bush's missteps and the spiraling chaos that has greeted his own goals…A cogent, detailed policy review.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Chollet has laid out a clear and compelling picture, and his text is positioned to become one of the definitive summaries of the Obama approach.” —National Interest


“Derek Chollet defines and explains the Obama foreign policy as grand strategy. The Long Game goes against the conventional wisdom of our moment. Though an insider's account, it views the present as history and puts down a marker that will shape how historians interpret the Obama years.” –George Packer, author of The Assassins' Gate and The Unwinding

“Foreign policy in the 21st century requires realism mixed with an element of idealism in order to navigate the intensifying anarchy of the world system. Derek Chollet shows this philosophy in action in this terrifically brisk, insider account of the Obama Administration's travails in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe. Agree with it or not, I know of no more compelling defense of Obama's record.” –Robert D. Kaplan, Senior Fellow at The Center for a New American Security and author of In Europe's Shadow: Two Cold Wars and a Thirty-Year Journey Through Romania and Beyond
