To mark one year since the inauguration of President Barack Obama, this Special Report brings together distinguished authors from the LSE and beyond to discuss how successfully the United States has reconfigured its foreign policy in the past year. Obama came to office facing a daunting array of specific policy challenges which were compounded by the twin overriding objectives to repudiate the Bush years and restore American legitimacy whilst focusing on economic renewal in the wake of the most severe economic crisis since the Great Depression. The picture of his first year in office is one of mixed success but of striking ambition.
