Based on its title, a reviewer might judge this book as one-dimensional. That would be a mistake. Author Stanley Kurtz does indeed grapple with the subject matter indicated in "Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities." However, he shows how White House social engineering links that hidden ambition to areas that at first glance may appear beyond issues inherent in a discussion of city versus suburban life.
Editor's Note: In this first of a five-part series, Middle East and Islam specialist Daniel Pipes begins his inquiry into Barack Obama's early Muslim connections by noting the president's autobiographical inaccuracies.
