Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is a credit to Parlett that he manages to decipher and disentangle the numerous charges aimed at Obama in a manner that is comprehensible and comprehensive; his book's argument is laid out clearly for academic and layman alike. . . . Some would prefer to take up arms. Yet in the end, the clear and sensible tone is what makes this book a triumph of reason over ignorance." - Review 31

"An excellent bibliography and a careful index make this a particularly valuable volume. . . . Summing Up: Highly recommended. All readers." - Choice
