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.
