Rather than have one section for the entirety of the Obama presidency, I have chosen to split this rather imposing topic into two. One, ‘Obama-land’ concerns the domestic efforts of the Obama adminstration, the country at large and the play between the two. The other section, ‘the Obama administrtion at large in the world’, obviously concerns the administration’s activities on the foreign policy front and on the ground ‘out there’.

Naturally, as with most categories, these sections are not airtight. Slippages and leakages occur here as elsewhere. Said aberrations will be dealt with as they turn up.

A good place to start on the place of the USA in the world is with Chalmers Johnson.
