For eight years, during Bill Clinton's two presidential terms, Madeleine Albright
was an active participant in the most dramatic events of recent times -- from the
pursuit of peace in the Middle East to NATO's humanitarian intervention in Kosovo.
Now, in an outspoken memoir, the highest-ranking woman in American history shares
her remarkable story and provides an insider's view of world affairs during a period
of unprecedented turbulence.
Praise for Madam Secretary:
"Her portraits of foreign leaders are lively and evocative
. . . the result is a book that creates a sense of policy made by real people."
--The New Yorker
"From mother and socialite to professor and secretary
of state . . . she is frank, assertive . . . straight-shooting."
--The New York Times
"This memoir captures the disarmingly blunt purposefulness
that made its author an irrepressible force in foreign affairs."
