9780143124269: The Obamians: The Struggle Inside the White House to Redefine American Power

The definitive analysis of the events, ideas, personalities, and conflicts that have defined Obama's foreign policyWhen Barack Obama took office, he brought with him a new group of foreign policy advisers intent on carving out a new global role for America in the wake of the Bush administration's war in Iraq. Now the acclaimed author of "Rise of the Vulcans" offers a definitive, even-handed account of the messier realities they've faced in implementing their policies.In "The Obamians," acclaimed author James Mann tells the compelling story of the administration's struggle to enact a coherent and effective set of policies in a time of global turmoil. At the heart of this struggle are the generational conflicts between the Democratic establishment--including Robert Gates, Hillary Clinton, and Joseph Biden--and Obama and his inner circle of largely unknown, remarkably youthful advisers, who came of age after the Cold War had ended.Written by a proven master at elucidating political underpinnings even to the politicians themselves, "The Obamians" is a pivotal reckoning of this historic president and his inner circle, and of how their policies may or may not continue to shape America and the world.

Book Description Penguin Books, 2013. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The Definitive Analysis of the Events, Ideas, Personalities, and Conflicts that Have Defined Obama's Foreign Policy-With a New Preface for His Second Term When Barack Obama first took office, he brought with him a new group of foreign policy advisers intent on carving out a new global role for America in the wake of the Bush administration. Here prize-winning author and journalist James Mann offers an even-handed account of the messier realities they've faced in implementing their policies-arid the challenges they will face going into the second term. The Obamians, the successor to Mann's New York Times bestseller Rise of the Vulcans, skillfully tells the compelling story of the Obama administration's struggle to enact a coherent and effective set of policies in a time of global turmoil. At the heart of this struggle are the generational conflicts between the Democratic establishment-including Robert Gates, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden-and Obama and his inner circle of largely unknown, remarkably youthful advisers, who came of age after the Cold War had ended. With in-depth reporting and revealing firsthand accounts, The Obamians is a pivotal reckoning of this historic president and his advisers, and of how their policies may or may not continue to shape America and the world. Includes a new preface by the author on how the Obamians' foreign policy affected the 2012 presidential campaign and what Obama's reelection means for America's relations with the world in his second term.
