Descripción del producto

FROM INSIDE OBAMA’S SITUATION ROOM . . . THE CRITICAL MOMENTS IN THE COVERT WAR AGAINST IRAN, THE STRUGGLES TO DEAL WITH A RECALCITRANT PAKISTAN AND ITS FAST-GROWING NUCLEAR ARSENAL, THE TENSIONS WITH THE AMERICAN MILITARY OVER AFGHANISTAN AND WITH ALLIES SWEPT UP IN THE CHAOS OF THE ARAB SPRING
 
Three and a half years ago, David Sanger’s book The Inheritance: The World Obama Confronts and the Challenges to American Power described how a new American president came to office with the world on fire. Now, just as the 2012 presidential election battle begins, Sanger follows up with an eye-opening, news-packed account of how Obama has dealt with those challenges, relying on innovative weapons and reconfigured tools of American power to try to manage a series of new threats. Sanger describes how Obama’s early idealism about fighting “a war of necessity” in Afghanistan quickly turned to fatigue and frustration, how the early hopes that the Arab Spring would bring about a democratic awakening slipped away, and how an effort to re-establish American power in the Pacific set the stage for a new era of tensions with the world’s great rising power, China. 

As the world seeks to understand the contours of the Obama Doctrine, Confront and Conceal is a fascinating, unflinching account of these complex years, in which the president and his administration have found themselves struggling to stay ahead in a world where power is diffuse and America’s ability to exert control grows ever more elusive.

I'm surprised as an international relations scholar at how well Sanger incorporated the academic into a journalist's account of the modern era of American foreign policy. Gripping and thorough, I would recommend this book to anyone who wishes to have the answers to some major foreign policy dilemmas (e.g., Syria) that still seem to elude pundits. Explained clearly and without bias, Sanger's book gives the reader a "fly on the wall" perspective on many of our country's critical foreign policy issues. I went into this book thinking I had great information on the subjects covered, but came away surprised at how much there was to learn and how little many prominent foreign policy "experts" are reading these days.

I thought this would be a bash Obama book.

It is not. It is well written, keeps you wanting more as the author explains all the issues and problems in the Middle East. Turns out that the US/Obama are more afraid of Pakistan on various levels. They cannot be trusted, they play both sides, and the US does not want them to become nuclear capable.

Discussions of why we believe we have to control nuclear armament by other countries. How we help one country for humanitarian reasons and ignore another for the same reasons. A cyber attack on Pakistans nuclear program is discussed.

The author does not assign blame but explains the political thinking and rationales. He writes an easy to understand manner and does not go into lots of Washingtonese language stuff.

Enjoyed the book immensely and will buy authors other book The Inheritance.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas The Moment when Cyber Warfare Crossed from Theory to Practice 26 de diciembre de 2013
Por Rick Howard - Publicado en Amazon.com

See full review at my Terebrate Blog.

This book is an interesting read for foreign policy buffs but a must-read for cyber security professionals interested in the evolution of cyber warfare. It is the first published book that chronicles the current US government’s thinking about the merits of cyber attacks as a middle-ground diplomacy option between invading a country on one hand and sanctions or negotiations on the other. It is also the first book that gave the public details about operation “Olympic Games,” a multiyear covert operation that the governments of the United States and Israel directed against Iran that changed the cyber security landscape forever. Security pundits have been saying for years that cyber warfare is theoretically possible or, more precisely, that cyber weapons could cause physical damage on a massive scale. Olympic Games demonstrated conclusively that hackers can use a cyber vector alone, without the aid of other kinetic weapons, to destroy components of a country’s critical infrastructure. Regardless of how successful Olympic Games ultimately was in slowing down the Iranian nuclear program, using cyber tools to inflict physical damage against your adversaries is now a viable option. Operation Olympic Games represents the world crossing the line between theory and practice, and this book is your guide to understanding that decision. This book is part of the canon, and you should have read it by now.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Obama's foreign policy is not a failure 10 de mayo de 2014

We often describe Obama being impractical in his foreign policy, that his diplomacy failed with regard to all regions. But Mr. Sanger shows how Obama has changed America's role in international relations, by limiting American military intervention and using more economic and limited military intervention with the support of other allies to confront global issues. Simultaneously, Mr. Sanger asserts that Obama has not hesitated to use American force in order to protect American national interests at home and abroad. One should read this book if they want to see how Obama has made his decisions.

This great book from David Sanger contains a broad range of topics of countries and organizations that want to compete and challenge the United States of America. Originally, I purchased this eBook, because I was interested in the USA's implementation of cyber warfare. Mr. Sanger did a great job explaining how the US and other nations are trying to use cyber warfare as a world-wide competitive advantage. His explanation and examples were interesting and relevant to recent news reports. He progressed to make us aware of the major powers in the Middle-East and Asia, which are attempting to be the next global superpowers. These current major global powers have recognized that cyber warfare as a definite weapon to challenge the USA's influence around the world. Mr. Sanger emphasized that the USA IS pursuing advances in cyber technology and warfare, because it has to continually be steps ahead of other global competitors. Thank goodness!
