            Authors Peter A. Olsson and Laurence F. Messnerboth had high hopes when Barack Obama was elected President of the United States. We were impressed with Obama's gift for moving and eloquent speeches. As both black and white himself, Obama had a unique opportunity. We had hopes tha...t Obama would bring black America and white America together to continue our country's solid progress toward freedom and justice for all, the authors state. After a severe economic crisis, we hoped for the return of American economic prosperity, military power, and spiritual leadership for peace in the world through American strength of leadership. We have been sorely disappointed in Mr. Obama! This book expresses our intense disappointments and the rationale behind our thinking. The opinions, discussions, and correspondence in The Trojan Horse Presidenttook place from soon after Barack Obama's election to the presidency until just before the presidential election of 2016. About the Authors: Peter A. Olsson and Laurence F. Messner have a combined writing experience of 75 years. Both authors grew up in Queens, New York, in the 1940s and 1950s, which instilled in them a traditional, conservative value system. The authors currently reside in Hampton, New Hampshire. Olsson is a retired psychiatrist/psychoanalyst who now writes books on cults, domestic and international terrorism, and commentary on the current American scene via novels, essays, and poetry. Messner is a retired Air Force officer and professor of leadership, who is currently an antiques dealer and author writing on both topics.

            Common Sense for America; in Crisis (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            America's foundational cause and intricate construction initially developed out of a sense of uniqueness, commonality, intrepidness, and exceptionalism. However, these virtuous traits have been consistently tarnished and despicably allowed to squander into a disconcerting politic...al and economic quagmire because of the questionable designs of a crony-capitalistic and duplicitous few. As a result, an insidious and nefarious cabal of elected and appointed deep state operatives have effectively conspired to diminish our country's once righteous purpose with their heinously corrupt intentions. This unfortunate reality has forced the people to perpetually subsist within a perplexing quandary due to their institutional governmental and corporate leaders express refusal to lawfully protect the will of the people, morally secure the ethical sanctity of our great nation, and aggressively defend our precious Constitution. Consequently, the masses must be ready, willing, and able to respond to our country's impending theoretical destruction by collectively rising as one to confront America's litany of ills and their genesis by initiating a 21st Century version of our patriot ancestors 18th Century Glorious Cause. A contemporaneous rebellion of such magnitude would surely demand the election of competent leadership who felt empowered to act responsibly by honorably reconstructing and then faithfully maintaining our nation's governmental and corporate bureaucracy within the visionary parameters of our illustrious Founding Fathers. For it would be deliciously ironic if the organic Spirit of 1776 was somehow resurrected in order to enable a modern-day societal renaissance of revolutionary-like Populism to flourish.

            Once upon a time, you could work for one company your whole adult life, you could make a decent living, and you could buy your piece of the American Dream. This book is part memoir and part political statement as it follows my thirty-seven-year career at the phone company that be...gan in 1973, about the time economists say worker pay flatlined. The telecommunications industry was ripped apart, absorbed, and gobbled up by each other until, within a few years, Ma Bell had reassembled itself into the corporation that had stifled innovation for almost one hundred years and provided steady dividends and a secure family atmosphere for employees. Capitalism Killed the Middle Class also examines the present political and economic systems rigged against us, and it gazes into the future for a path to a more secure and prosperous quality of life for our children.

            Ties between the United States (US) and the European Union (EU) rival those between any other pair of international actors. After all, no other regions of the world are as closely connected in economics, security and politics as Europe and the US. This comprehensive volume makes ...conceptual progress and empirical contributions in accounting for how EU-US relations have been impacted by a context of multiple EU crises alongside a parallel change in US policies. The authors find strong evidence to suggest that the transatlantic relationship is weakening. This is partly a consequence of the EU's internal policies, as it becomes more unified and autonomous of the US in some areas, while fragmenting in others. Most importantly, it is a consequence of the two actors' increasingly diverging perspectives and positions on international issues, institutions, norms and indeed the value of the transatlantic relationship. Although the long-term effects remain to be seen, it is likely that the cracks in the foundation of transatlantic relations will continue into the present and foreseeable future. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of European Integration.

            Offering a fresh look at the ways in which neoliberalism has claimed to cure the Balkan region of its ethnic particularities under the pretext of Europeanisation, this book shows how the reconfiguration of the economic, political and cultural landscape of the region has resulted ...in its functioning as Europe's neo-colony. The contributors to this volume engage in postcolonial analysis of the Balkans' past and present coloniality by way of interrogating race, racism, trauma, film and global capitalism. They challenge the idea of a United Europe that rests on the assumption that the European Union's `newness' represents both a clean slate and the right to shift ownership of its colonial histories to former colonial subjects and their national histories. Taken as a whole, the volume seeks to transform Europe's colonial amnesia into postcolonial awareness and to speak from within the Balkans as a site of Europe's neo-colony. As it critically interrogates a neo-colonial reconfiguration of the Balkans as a massive social overhaul, which includes at once global integration and local social disintegration, this book will be of interest to those studying the region, as well as post-colonialism in general. This book was originally published as a special issue of Interventions: Journal of Postcolonial Studies.
