    Book Review

    President Barack Obama entered office in January 2009 with a plateful of domestic and international challenges. The worst economic recession in decades, a financial system teetering on the brink of collapse, two increasingly costly and unpopular overseas wars, festering nuclear tensions with Iran and North Korea, isolation and distrust from the international community and the threat of international terrorism were some of the challenges Obama inherited from his predecessor, George W. Bush. US Foreign Policy Today: American Renewal?, edited by Steven W. Hook and James M. Scott, analyses and examines the commitment of the Obama administration to domestic and foreign policy renewal. It explores the broad outlines of the renewal agenda and the challenges faced by the administration in making it a reality.
