The Book - America in the mirror. Myths and realities of the Obama strategy toward the Asia-Pacific region and the culture of its foreign policy.
The Pivot to Asia was conceived by the Obama administration as an important regional strategic reorientation, but not only. In 2011-2012 it was intended also to indicate a new direction for the United States, prompting them to turn the page on the decade of wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Asian policy of Obama took the form of a mirror where America could see its (uncertain)  reflected image of its global leadership and its development model. The portrait of a country that, shaken by the rise of China, could identify the Pacific area as its future geographical coordinates. Asia as the place of the strategic challenges to be overcome and economic opportunities to be seized.
