Madeleine Albright served as America's sixty-fourth secretary of state from 1997 to 2001. Her distinguished career also in-cludes positions at the White House, on Capitol Hill, and as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. She is a resident of Washington D.C., and Virginia.
"This richly detailed memoir by the former Secretary of State covers the period since her departure from government, in 2001. With clarity and wisdom, Albright recounts moments of pride, like receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, in 2012, and acknowledges recent criticisms of her record, including those concerning the human cost of the sanctions that the Clinton Administration imposed on Iraq. Ultimately, the book presents an intricate portrait of a diplomat, and her ardent belief in democratic values and human rights, transatlantic partnerships and arms control, and open economies and sturdy institutions."--New Yorker "This passionately told account of Albright's 'afterlife' will inspire readers to become involved in the issues meaningful to them. Recommended for all interested in politics, leadership, and women's studies."--Library Journal (starred review) "The book reflects the energy and churn of her post-State Department life...What resonated with me most were the human moments...her successes and her failures. The changes she's witnessed and the glass ceilings that remain."--NPR "In a blunt and revealing memoir, the former secretary of state reflects on the final stages of her career, working productively in her later decades and the state of the world since she left office in 2001."--USA Today "Former secretary of state Albright weaves geopolitics with her own life story in this intelligent and personable memoir....She proves to be a capacious storyteller, willing to share personal disappointments, such as the dissolution of her marriage, as well as professional accomplishments. This appealing memoir will charm readers interested in contemporary politics and women's issues."--Publishers Weekly "By turns poignant and hilarious."--New York Times "A humorous, self-deprecating account of her past two decades as a professor, businesswoman, mother and grandmother."--Wall Street Journal
