Die USA unter Obama. Tightly connected to the historical material and with theoretical breath, they deal with national and international conflict fronts and relationships of forces, actors and perspectives of U. The result is a formidable, critical, yes skeptical depiction. At the same time, they show an author who has relentlessly logged and analyzed U.
A citizen of two worlds, the German and the Canadian one where the latter rests culturally halfway between the United States, his object of study, and Europe, Ingar Solty makes a name for himself as one of the most productive, young representatives of critical research on the United States …. On that basis, and given my basic precondition for any scholarly collaboration namely that I could learn from my co-author I began ongoing scholarly work with Solty and I continue to learn a great deal from him: It details precisely how the first Obama administration responded to the post global economic crisis, partly to reconstruct neoliberalism via state interventionism.

In sum, this wide-ranging volume is an essential read for our understanding of the nature of dominant power — and its internal and external limits and contradictions — in the crisis-ridden period since the start of the 21st century. But as it stands, this incisive analysis succeeds in identifying the deeper structural causes why any change in the US political system is almost impossible to begin with.
To answer the question whether Obama in his second term will be able or even attempt at all to wrest free from the stranglehold of the multiple layers of opposition to change, we need four more years. Just as back in the day the communist Gorbachev, today, around years after the abolition of slavery, the African American Barack Obama is one of the most persistent favorites of Western Europeans. With critical theory and political precision he navigates through already forgotten landscapes.
We are reminded of memorable inhabitants: Solty examines the changes in political leadership under Obama, social movements in the global crisis, the American Empire and the second crisis presidency. Currently the best analysis of the Obama era. He shows with many examples that there is also much to criticize in Obama's United States Solty's main thesis is that Obama has reconstructed neoliberalism in the crisis and is now about to deepen it together with the Republicans.
To a Marxist, this apparently sounds like a horrific idea However, it is by no means a superficial and broad-brush analysis. Instead, it contains multiple statistical evidence and recapitulates the recent historical developments and political events interpreting them from a Marxist perspective. While the attentive reader is already familiar with Solty's texts The reader of this book is asked to put in some 'work'.
Yet, he or she is widely remunerated with many recognitions and inspiring thoughts - something which cannot be said to the same degree of the rest of the publications out there devoted to the same topic.

In many ways, this debate evolved from long-term disputes regarding the nature of the current phase of capitalism and its periodization monopoly-finance capitalism, post-Fordism, finance driven accumulation regime, financial-market capitalism, neoliberalism, high-tech capitalism etc. However, as Magnus Ryner has pointed out, with a few notable exceptions, the debate has shed insufficient light on the political articulation of the crisis and the interrelations between the political and the economic sphere. With regard to not only the origins of the crisis but also and particularly the viability of exit strategies from it, the struggles over hegemony occurring during the crisis are essential.
Hence, complementing the Marxist and Marxian crisis debate, it is the goal of this paper to shed some light on the political articulations of the global crisis and assess the interrelations between global leadership efforts seeking exit strategies from the crisis and the hegemonic struggles underlying their agencies. While in looking at the struggle between left and right projects of leadership references will be made to numerous core and non-core capitalist countries, the main focus will be on the two dominant actors in NAFTA and the EU, the United States and Germany, which have shaped the politics of exit strategies from the crisis in North America and the Eurozone.
