A career politician and student of foreign affairs offers an analysis of the last three American presidents' policies in the globalized world after the fall of the Soviet Union. The audiobook won't interest beginners to political science, but its fresh approach, articulate style, and meticulous research can't help but tease the brains of interested intellectuals. Dick Hill adds expression to his narration by giving strong emphasis to some syllables, words, and phrases while dropping others to inaudibility. Such a loud and soft technique can work for fiction, but the loss of important words in nonfiction creates a distracting annoyance. Hill should be commended for not attempting the author's Polish accent as it might have sacrificed even more words or created an inappropriate comedic effect.
