On After Obama: Renewing American Leadership, Restoring Global Order (Cambridge University Press, 2016)

  • Gary J. Schmitt, Director of the Ware Center for Security Studies, American Enterprise Institute: 'After Obama is the intellectual cold shower needed after more than a decade of strategically incoherent behavior on the part of the United States. Witty and sure-footed in his command of history, American politics and international affairs, Robert Singh offers a concise account of the hole Washington has dug for itself and the steps necessary for America to regain its position of global leadership.'
  • Robert J. Lieber, Professor of Government and International Affairs, Georgetown University: Singh delivers a deeply informed critique of the Obama foreign policy, its logic and consequences. The work offers a searing indictment of those policies, but it is carefully substantiated and the author's own viewpoint, as a foreign friend of America assessing its strategy with deep and sympathetic concern, considerably mitigates what those prone to disagree might otherwise attempt to paint as a partisan critique.'
  • Michael Kort, Professor of Social Sciences, Boston University: With After Obama, Robert Singh has met a real need by providing a concise and clearly written volume suitable for a variety of college courses that presents a thorough and balanced critique of President Obama's foreign policy. After Obama also should win a wide readership among foreign policy specialists and extend its appeal beyond academia to a considerable lay audience.'
