Summary
While the United States cannot solve the world's problems alone, it is not ready to allow any of these to be solved without it, let alone against it. This is the foundation of Obama's policy and the purpose of this book is to verify its validity and effectiveness. Barack Obama is inspired by a realist vision of the global order. Bereft of any grand vision, his ambition is to preserve America's great power status and make it acceptable to the rest of the world. He no longer wants his country to serve as the world's policeman. However, he has no intention of letting another country displace the United States. His scope of action lies between these two limits. Because he is not driven by a grand design, by the same token he is not willing to take any great risks. This may explain also why his achievements are limited
