The Obama Doctrine: American Grand Strategy Tod...

By mid-2015 the Obama presidency will be entering its final stages, and the race among the successors in both parties will be well underway. And while experts have already formed a provisional understanding of the Obama administration's foreign policy goals, the shape of the "Obama Doctrine" is finally coming into full view. It has been consistently cautious since Obama was inaugurated in 2009, but recent events in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and the Far East have led an increasingly large number of foreign policy experts to conclude that caution has transformed into weakness. In The Obama Doctrine, Colin Dueck analyzes and explains what the Obama Doctrine in foreign policy actually is and maps out the competing visions on offer from the Republican Party. Dueck, a leading scholar of US foreign policy, contends it is now becoming clear that Obama's policy of international retrenchment is in large part a function of his emphasis on achieving domestic policy goals. There have been some successes in the approach, but there have also been costs. For instance, much of the world no longer trusts the US to exert its will in international politics, and America's adversaries overseas have asserted themselves with increasing frequency. The Republican Party will target these perceived weaknesses in the 2016 presidential campaign and develop competing counterdoctrines in the process. Dueck explains that within the Republican Party, there are two basic impulses vying with each other: neo-isolationism and forceful internationalism. Dueck subdivides each impulse into the specific agenda of the various factions within the party: Tea Party nationalism, neoconservatism, conservative internationalism, and neoisolationism. He favors a realistic but forceful US internationalism and sees the willingness to disengage from the world by some elements of the party as dangerous. After dissecting the various strands, he articulates an agenda of forward-leaning Am 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Kipiniak.

In April 2009, First Lady Michelle Obama planted a kitchen garden on the White House's South Lawn. It is a garden with roots in the American past, stretching back to George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson, but it is also a garden very much designed for America's future. As fresh vegetables, fruit, and herbs sprouted from the ground, this White House Kitchen Garden inspired a new conversation all across the country about the food we feed our families and the impact it has on the health and well-being of our children. Now, in her first-ever book, American Grown, Mrs. Obama invites you inside the White House Kitchen Garden and shares its inspiring story, from the first planting to the latest harvest. Hear about her worries as a novice gardener: Would the new plants even grow? Learn about her struggles and her joys as lettuce, corn, tomatoes, collards and kale, sweet potatoes and rhubarb flourished in the freshly tilled soil. Get an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at every season of the garden's growth, with striking original photographs that bring its story to life. Try the unique recipes created by top White House chefs and made with ingredients freshly picked from the White House garden. And learn from the White House Garden team about how you can help plant your own backyard, school, or community garden.

Michelle Obama: A Feminine Leadership: Strategi...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book will teach you the strategies used by Michelle Obama to become a leader by using skills typically utilized by female leaders, such as compassion, communication, and solidarity; qualities that her male counterparts tend to lack. Leading as a man in the traditional sense often implies in the long run a deep discontent and restlessness. Effective leadership, as exemplified by Michelle Obama, can result from the skills that many women possess. Whether you are male or female, discover the skills that define feminine leadership and learn how to effectively use them from Michelle Obama's example. Michelle Obama commands respect and admiration for her causes and efforts separate from her husband's position as President of the United States. During a speech in March 2016, her husband confirmed that becoming president was not at all in Michelle's plans for the future, disappointing many. However, Michelle has numerous plans to continue being a leader and affecting change out of the spotlight of the White House. How can you learn from the ways that she leads as a woman, but neither commits to more traditional projects of first ladies of the past, nor tries to steal methods of leadership from male leaders of US past. The first lady has been a leader in gaining respect and earning admiration through her quiet determination in various aspects of her life. From schoolyard discrimination in childhood to her many initiatives to support minorities during her time at college and Law School at Harvard, she refused to back down. As First Lady, she receives criticism for not being a leader in many more traditional feminist causes. This view obscures the incredible work she has done for the visibility of a range of causes, including education, childhood obesity. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adrienne Ellis.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Journalist David Cay Johnston has written The Making of Donald Trump in journalistic prose sprinkled with pointed dry humor. His discussions of his various arguments are to the point, but the book lacks some overall organization. While some points made do not add a lot towards the intended depiction of Donald Trump, other elements of Trump's life that could act as supporting evidence are not mentioned at all. Some of these latter elements include: Trump's The Apprentice reality show, the President Obama birther movement, and Trump's previous runs for the presidency. This is a summary and analysis of the book and not the original book. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Guy Lozier. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/074893/bk_acx0_074893_sample.mp3.

Rising Star

ggf. zzgl. Versand

New York Times Bestseller One of the Washington Post's 10 Best Books of 2017 Rising Star is the definitive account of Barack Obama's formative years that made him the man who became the forty-fourth president of the United States-from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Bearing the Cross Barack Obama's speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention instantly catapulted him into the national spotlight and led to his election four years later as America's first African-American president. In this penetrating biography, David J. Garrow delivers an epic work about the life of Barack Obama, creating a rich tapestry of a life little understood, until now. Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama captivatingly describes Barack Obama's tumultuous upbringing as a young black man attending an almost-all-white, elite private school in Honolulu while being raised almost exclusively by his white grandparents. After recounting Obama's college years in California and New York, Garrow charts Obama's time as a Chicago community organizer, working in some of the city's roughest neighborhoods; his years at the top of his Harvard Law School class; and his return to Chicago, where Obama honed his skills as a hard-knuckled politician, first in the state legislature and then as a candidate for the United States Senate. Detailing a scintillating, behind-the-scenes account of Obama's 2004 speech, a moment that labeled him the Democratic Party's "rising star," Garrow also chronicles Obama's four years in the Senate, weighing his stands on various issues against positions he had taken years earlier, and recounts his thrilling run for the White House in 2008. In Rising Star, David J. Garrow has created a vivid portrait that reveals not only the people and forces that shaped the future president but also the ways in which he used those influences to serve his larger aspirations. This is a gripping read about a young man born into uncommon family circumstances, whose faith in his own talents came face-to-face with fantastic ambitions and a desire to do good in the world. Most important, Rising Star is an extraordinary work of biography-tremendous in its research and storytelling, and brilliant in its analysis of the all-too-human struggles of one of the most fascinating politicians of our time.
