Dear Barack by Author Claudia Clark
Dear Barack: The Extraordinary Partnership of Barack Obama and Angela Merkel by Author Claudia Clark is a book about one of the great political friendships of the modern world, as told through key moments that shaped the twenty-first century.
With a total of 350 pages, Dear Barack: The Extraordinary Partnership of Barack Obama and Angela Merkel gives a great insight about the mutual partnership of Barack Obama and Angela Merkel from a distance and with a sense of pride. The multi-dimensional thesis of the personal friendship of Barack Obma and Angela Mekel combined with the geopolitical issues at play during the course of their terms in office, takes the book to a higher or more sophisticated level than if the book simply discussed the friendship of Obama and Merkel.
Literally the ease with with which the author wrote and the good writing style had me completely hooked with the book from the very beginning. I especially appreciated that this book really shows that it is possible for politicians of differing political ideologies to establish such formidable bonds in efforts to protect democracy.
Dear Barack: The Extraordinary Partnership of Barack Obama and Angela Merkel is highly recommended to anyone who enjoys history, political science, or international relations–regardless of their personal feelings toward Obama and Merkel and their policies.
