Power Wars

Inside Obama's Post-9/11 Presidency


Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Charlie Savage's penetrating investigation of the Obama presidency and the national security state

Barack Obama campaigned on a promise of change from George W. Bush's "global war on terror." Yet from indefinite detention and drone strikes to surveillance and military tribunals, Obama ended up continuing-and in some cases expanding-many policies he inherited. What happened?

첫인상을 결정하는 소통 기술 10

많은 사람들이 말 잘하기를 희망한다. 그런데 말 잘하는 사람이 사람들에게 호감을 주며 리드해 나가는 것은 아니다. 말을 잘하는 사람 중에는 '독선적', '이기적', '잘난 척'의 인상을 주기도 한다. 말로 소통한다는 것이 말을 잘 한다고 되는 것은 아니다. 서로 나누려 하는 대화가 원활하게 소통을 이루면 많은 사람들에게 호감도를 높이고 함께 하고 싶은 사람, 기억에 남는 사람이 되는 것이다. 같은 말도 사람의 어투나 얼굴 표정, 제스처에 따라 전혀 다른 전달이 될 수 있다는 것도 생각하고 이 책이 자신이 하는 말의 의도가 빗나가지 않고 많은 사람들과 행복한 소통을 이루는데 도움이…

In Power Wars, Charlie Savage looks inside the Obama administration's national security legal and policy team in a way that no one has before. Based on exclusive interviews with more than 150 current and former officials and access to previously unreported documents, he lays bare their internal deliberations, including emotional debates over the fates of detainees held on torture-tainted evidence and acts of war that lacked congressional authorization. He tells the inside stories of how Obama came to order the killing of an American citizen, preside over an unprecedented crackdown on leaks, and keep a then-secret National Security Agency program that collected records of every American's phone calls.

Savage also pieces together the first comprehensive history of how American surveillance secretly developed over the past thirty-five years, synthesizing recent revelations and filling in gaps with new reporting. And he provides lucid explanations of legal dilemmas in a way that non-lawyers can understand. Highlighted by new information about the pivotal aftermath to the failed Christmas underwear bombing and the planning for the Osama bin Laden raid, Savage's own eyewitness reporting at Guantánamo, and detailed accounts of closed-door meetings at the highest levels of government, Power Wars equips readers to understand the legacy of Obama's presidency.
