Message to Obama:Education is the Solution to The Middle East Conflict Moustafa Moursi Ahmed
Conquest, Famine, War, Death: the four horsemen are coming, in the form of the national debt, widespread dependence on government, turmoil in the Middle East, and the expansion of the bureaucratic state. In Obama’s Four Horsemen, syndicated columnist David Harsanyi takes a provocative look at how the Obama Administration allowed four big problems to mushroom into looming disasters we can no longer avoid or postpone. In his famous conversational, fact-driven, and humorous tone, Harsanyi argues that President Obama’s handling of both domestic and foreign crises has set the stage for a disaster of Biblical proportions. Under Obama, America has become a land of more dependence, more hand-outs, more federal programs, and more government agencies. The great danger is that Americans have gotten used to it. Many people today expect, as a matter of fact, that the government will hand them health insurance, student loans, birth control, and anything else they might need or desire while they are increasingly numb to the pernicious creep of the bureaucratic state and the alarming escalation of unsustainable spending and debt. Meanwhile, powerful forces abroad seek to destroy American and Western culture while Obama has sat on his thumbs and looked the other way, tossing out politically correct platitudes when asked about his response to their open threats and aggression. America is facing a time of great upheaval, domestic and global. Obama’s Four Horseman is a provocative exposé on how we got here, and a chilling prediction of what’s to come. 1. Language: English.

Here is the biography of America´s hottest political superstar, Barack Obama, from a journalist who has been covering Obama´s career since his successful run for the US Senate. Barack Obama´s meteoric rise is the stuff of legend. Since his headline-grabbing speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2004, Obama has come to represent the promise of unity among groups of all types: blacks and whites; Democrats, Republicans, and moderates; the upper, middle, and lower classes. In this groundbreaking biography, veteran journalist and Obama chronicler David Mendell gives an in-depth, comprehensive portrait of a man whose name has become a catchphrase for hope in a politically jaded society desperate for a new star. Mendell has covered Obama since the beginning of his Senate campaign and, as a result, enjoys far-reaching access to the new senator. His research includes exclusive interviews with Obama´s closest aides, mentors, political adversaries, and family. Mendell reveals the surprising, cutthroat campaign tactics sanctioned by Obama - who has steeped his image and reputation in the ideals of clean politics and good government - which enabled him to win his Senate seat by employing some of the most ruthless operatives in the business. Eye-opening, well-researched, and compulsively listenable, Obama: From Promise to Power is a necessary look at the evolution of a politician from public servant to candidate-savior. 1.

American Democracy Promotion in the Changing Middle East:From Bush to Obama
America´s Challenges in the Greater Middle East:The Obama Administration´s Policies
This timely book focuses on President Obama´s deeply considered strategy toward Iran´s nuclear program and reveals how the historic agreement of 2015 broke the persistent stalemate in negotiations that had blocked earlier efforts. The deal accomplished two major feats in one stroke: it averted the threat of war with Iran and prevented the possibility of an Iranian nuclear bomb. Trita Parsi, a Middle East foreign policy expert who advised the Obama White House throughout the talks and had access to decision-makers and diplomats on the US and Iranian sides alike, examines every facet of a triumph that could become as important and consequential as Nixon´s rapprochement with China. Drawing from more than 75 in-depth interviews with key decision-makers, including Iran´s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and US Secretary of State John Kerry, this is the first authoritative account of President Obama´s signature foreign policy achievement. 1.
