Product description

There is more continuity than discontinuity in US national security policy under President Obama, despite widespread expectations for change and equally widespread misperceptions of fundamental changes having been wrought. This project brings together US and non-US experts to assess continuities and changes in US national security policy in the Obama era. The book will be accessible to upper-level undergrads, graduate students and the concerned public, inclusive of policymakers and professionals. The methods will be eclectic.
