9780815724476: Bending History: Barack Obama's Foreign Policy
Présentation de l'éditeur :

How well has President Barack Obama carried out his duties as commander in chief, top diplomat, and grand strategist? Despite having won election to a second White House term, he still has not been able to change the toxic climate of Washington. Economic difficulties dominated the early years of his presidency, but history's verdict on his presidency will likely hinge as much on foreign policy. In 'Bending History', a trio of renowned foreign policy experts illuminates the grand promise and the great contradictions of a leader who has captured the attention and imagination of citizens around the world like few of his White House predecessors.
Conflicting caricatures of Obama miss the mark. Contrary to what many on the Right believe, he is not a na?ve apologist trying to quash American 'exceptionalism.' And while some on the Left look to him as a transformational political figure, others believe he is an accommodationist lacking the nerve to end the excesses of George Bush's antiterror policies. Not surprisingly, Obama is substantially more complicated and nuanced than any of these images allows.
'Bending History' argues that Obama thus far has, above all, been a foreign-policy pragmatist, tackling one issue at a time in a thoughtful way. On balance he has been competent and solid, choosing reasonable policies (or least-worst options, at least) with an approach typified by thoroughness, reasonably good teamwork, and flexibility when needed.

Description du livre BROOKINGS INSTITUTION, United States, 2013. Paperback. État : New. 2nd Revised with a New Preface ed.. 216 x 142 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. By the time of Barack Obama s inauguration as the 44th president of the United States, he had already developed an ambitious foreign policy vision. By his own account, he sought to bend the arc of history toward greater justice, freedom, and peace; within a year he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, largely for that promise. In Bending History , Martin Indyk, Kenneth Lieberthal, and Michael O Hanlon measure Obama not only against the record of his predecessors and the immediate challenges of the day, but also against his own soaring rhetoric and inspiring goals. Bending History assesses the considerable accomplishments as well as the failures and seeks to explain what has happened. Obama s best work has been on major and pressing foreign policy challenges - counterterrorism policy, including the daring raid that eliminated Osama bin Laden; the reset with Russia; managing the increasingly significant relationship with China; and handling the rogue states of Iran and North Korea. Policy on resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, however, has reflected serious flaws in both strategy and execution. Afghanistan policy has been plagued by inconsistent messaging and teamwork. On important softer security issues - from energy and climate policy to problems in Africa and Mexico - the record is mixed. As for his early aspiration to reshape the international order, according greater roles and responsibilities to rising powers, Obama s efforts have been well-conceived but of limited effectiveness. On issues of secondary importance, Obama has been disciplined in avoiding fruitless disputes (as with Chavez in Venezuela and Castro in Cuba) and insisting that others take the lead (as with Qaddafi in Libya). Notwithstanding several missteps, he has generally managed well the complex challenges of the Arab awakenings, striving to strike the right balance between U.S. values and interests. The authors see Obama s foreign policy to date as a triumph of discipline and realism over ideology. He has been neither the transformative beacon his devotees have wanted, nor the weak apologist for America that his critics allege. They conclude that his grand strategy for promoting American interests in a tumultuous world may only now be emerging, and may yet be curtailed by conflict with Iran. Most of all, they argue that he or his successor will have to embrace U.S. economic renewal as the core foreign policy and national security challenge of the future.
