"As Jeremy Kuzmarov lays out in this extraordinary book, Obama doubled down on most of Bush and Cheney's hawkish, confrontational, and surveillance-obsessed policies and helped pave the way for the current nightmare of Trumpian warmongering."--PETER KUZNICK
"Kuzmarov's book is serious and fair and should prompt historians -- and the rest of us -- to reevaluate Obama's legacy" - BRIAN D'HAESELEER, Washington Post "Kuzmarov's impeccable and extensive research reveals the reality of Obama's eight presidential years favoring the rich class' economic and military-warring interests..." RON RIDENOUR, Black Agenda Report "A devastatingly clinical analysis of the cynical thinking that defines the Democratic Party's foreign policy consensus - and of the public relations tactics the party's leadership applies to sell it to their liberal base." --MAX BLUMENTHAL
"This is a must-read for anyone believing that simply getting rid of Trump and returning to "normal" is a way forward."--DAN KOVALIK "Barack Obama seemed skeptical of militarism, but then bombed Libya & Syria, sent more troops to Iraq and Afghanistan & escalated Cold War with Russia. Why and how? Read Obama's Unending Wars: Fronting the Foreign Policy of the Permanent Warfare State." - STEPHEN KINZER
