Editorial Reviews

Review

...it is definitely a must read for anyone wishing to understand why America seems more alone in the world now than it has ever been. -- ConservativeHQ

Herschensohn was once a former deputy special assistant to President Nixon, who hailed him as 'particularly well qualified in an area I find important, foreign policy. He is an expert in that area.' To have been called an expert in foreign policy by Richard Nixon is like having Pavarotti say you're a great singer. Nixon often dazzled audiences with tours d'horizon of international affairs, and Herschensohn does the same.... -- Human Events

In the first presidential debate of the 2012 election, Republican challenger Mitt Romney defeated Barack Obama handily in a takedown of the President's devastating domestic policies. Foreign policy wasn't addressed, but all Romney need do to to brush up for a victory in that arena is study Bruce Herschensohn's new book. -- FrontPage Magazine

Bruce Herschensohn calmly makes a devastating case against the foreign policy of President Barack Hussein Obama and, more importantly, offers readers a foundation on which they can build their own ability to assess American international relations going forward. -- The American Spectator

"It's truly a critical book... Brief and powerful... It's something that the Romney campaign ought to memorize... The Dean, in my opinion, of observers of foreign policy - Bruce Herschensohn... My favorite analyst of world affairs, Bruce Herschensohn. And I mean that quite literally." -- Dennis Prager, best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio show host (taken from the Sept 27 interview)

From the Inside Flap


The international relations of the United States has changed radically from what had been U.S. foreign policy for decades under presidents from both major political parties. Those were times in which people around the world could count on Presidents of the United States to treat the U.S.A.'s friends as friends and adversaries as adversaries.


The book makes no predictions other than the obvious: on January the 20th of 2013 there will be an inaugural ceremony above the west steps of the U.S. Capitol Building. It might be the Second Inaugural of Barack Obama or it might be the First Inaugural of someone else.


Either way, that elected leader will be a War-Time President.

Mr. Herschensohn simply and plainly explains, with reliable cited sources, how Obama's fumbling or purposeful deceit, is hurting America in relation to our "friends." In essence, Obama has managed to destroy or badly injure America's image and trustworthiness across the world.

The author starts each section with a review of the long history that had built America's relations with her long term allies. Then, he systematically explains how Obama has purposely turned alliances into relationships of distrust...not with the American people but Obama himself.

You will have difficulty reading too much of this book at one setting because it is so upsetting. At the same time, you will not be able to put it away simply because it is impelling reading.

Fascinating and illuminating history and current events of different aspects of foreign policy and the presidency. Goes into the specifics of Obama's time in office and the effect it is having on the U.S. role in international events. I was more impressed with Herschensohn's knowledge of history and politics than anything else. I had the impression that Obama had damaged the U.S. in foreign policy, but this puts facts out there to substantiate the impression. Worth reading just for the historical insights it gives.

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.

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.

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

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.

A well researched and frightening look into the current trend in foreign policy of America. For a layperson like myself it was very eye opening to understand the political basis of what seems to be a consistent direction towards betrayal of our country's core foundation and strength. I do not understand the basis of our current presidents actions but they seem to be naive at best, and nefarious at worst. One can only hope that too much damage isn't done before it is too late.
