Summary
"In this illuminating examination of the Obama presidency, William Crotty and the contributors present an analysis of the motivations and political thinking underlying the administration's policy actions along with assessments of the public's reaction to policy consequences the agenda favored. Throughout the Obama administration, efforts were made to alleviate the worst of the economic stress facing the nation, move the president closer to the center of the American political spectrum, and prepare for the upcoming reelection campaign. This book goes a long way in explaining the policy decisions made and their consequences, as well as the choices facing a nation in transition."--Back cover
