Madeleine Albright is one of the most deeply admired women of our time, and the first female in our nation's history to achieve the title Secretary of State. For eight years during the first and second Clinton terms, she was privy to some of the most fascinating and controversial episodes in memory. Now, in this outspoken memoir, Madeleine Albright shares her personal story, and provides an insider's look into the White House and world affairs during an era of unprecedented change. From a difficult start as a political refugee from Czechoslovakia, Albright went on to become a tireless advocate of civil and women's rights, and pursued a life in politics that ultimately landed her in the upper stratosphere of diplomacy and policy-making in her adopted country. Refreshingly candid, Madam Secretary brings to life the world leaders Albright worked with intimately in her years of service, and the battles she fought to prove her worth in a male-dominated arena. We also get to know Albright, the private woman: her life raising three daughters, the painful breakup of her marriage, and the discovery late in life of her own Jewish background and that her grandparents had died in concentration

About the Author:

MADELEINE ALBRIGHT, born in Prague, was confirmed as the 64th Secretary of State in 1997. Her distinguished career in government includes positions in the National Security Council, as U. S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and on Capitol Hill.

From AudioFile:

Former U.N. Ambassador and Secretary of State Madeleine Albright recounts her international relations experiences while working for the Clinton administration, blending details of both her work and her personal life in a nice balance. Albright reads accounts of her life as a working mother and public figure with a clear, professorial voice, befitting a stateswoman. Notably, she spends little time discussing the Lewinsky affair, focusing instead on the important achievements of the administration, often overshadowed by the scandal. Albright gives a detailed and personal glimpse into U.S. diplomatic affairs in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe, conveying her personal feelings, triumphs, and frustrations adeptly.
