Hadley on his new book, Hand-Off: The Foreign Policy George W. Bush Passed to Barack Obama.

About the Book

Hand-Off offers a firsthand look at the foreign policy the Bush administration turned over to President Obama. The book includes thirty newly declassified transition memoranda made public for the first time, offering an exclusive glimpse into Bush's foreign policy legacy. 

In a postscript to each memorandum, national security experts from the Bush administration take a look back at their foreign policy record after more than a dozen years out of office.
