About this book

There is more continuity than discontinuity in US national security policy under President Obama, despite widespread expectations for change and misperceptions of fundamental changes having been wrought. This project brings together US and non-US experts to assess continuities and changes in US national security policy in the Obama era.

Reviews

'In National Security Under the Obama Administration, editors Bahram M. Rajaee and Mark J. Miller have assembled an impressively diverse set of authors to examine 'continuities and discontinuities that have characterized US national security policy in the transition from the Bush administration into the first two and a half years of the Obama administration.' From the topical areas covered - US National Security institutions and processes, world regions, and contemporary policy issues - to the rich insights of both US and international authors, this edited volume contributes much more than a simple assessment of how the Obama administration has fared in the national security global arena: it provides much-needed and long-overdue non-US perspective to the discussion. Scholars, practitioners, and of course teachers will find much in this edited volume to inform, stimulate, and provoke thoughtful and necessary analysis and reflection. The editors deserve high praise for organizing and executing this topical and timely assessment.' - Robert H. 'Robin' Dorff, General Douglas MacArthur Chair of Research, and professor of National Security Affairs, Strategic Studies Institute, U.S. Army War College
