Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
...it is definitely a must read for anyone wishing to understand why America seems more alone in the world now than it has ever been. — ConservativeHQ

Herschensohn was once a former deputy special assistant to President Nixon, who hailed him as 'particularly well qualified in an area I find important, foreign policy. He is an expert in that area.' To have been called an expert in foreign policy by Richard Nixon is like having Pavarotti say you're a great singer. Nixon often dazzled audiences with tours d'horizon of international affairs, and Herschensohn does the same.... — Human Events

In the first presidential debate of the 2012 election, Republican challenger Mitt Romney defeated Barack Obama handily in a takedown of the President's devastating domestic policies. Foreign policy wasn't addressed, but all Romney need do to to brush up for a victory in that arena is study Bruce Herschensohn's new book. — FrontPage Magazine

Bruce Herschensohn calmly makes a devastating case against the foreign policy of President Barack Hussein Obama and, more importantly, offers readers a foundation on which they can build their own ability to assess American international relations going forward. — The American Spectator

It's truly a critical book... Brief and powerful... It's something that the Romney campaign ought to memorize... The Dean, in my opinion, of observers of foreign policy - Bruce Herschensohn... My favorite analyst of world affairs, Bruce Herschensohn. And I mean that quite literally. — Dennis Prager, best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio show host (taken from the Sept 27 interview)
