About this book

Exploring the 'promise' and 'peril' associated with the opening two years of the presidency of Barack Obama, this book is a comparative look at the various aspects of his presidential strategy including the impact of his legislative agenda, his use of executive power, and the burgeoning disillusionment within the African American community.

Reviews

'A very timely focus on the reactions of President Obama's administration to multiple challenges, domestically and internationally. The chapters read like an interpretation of living history and are well documented and believable, particularly for the lay person unaware of the multiple details impacting President Obama's decision-making process. The book will appeal to both undergraduate and graduate students studying the American presidency, national government, introduction to Political Science, US foreign policy, and comparative politics. The text is timely and addresses the public's general curiosity about the motivations of President Barrack Obama in the areas of domestic and foreign policy.' Michael Frazier, Howard University
