: Born in 1937, Madeleine Albright came from an Eastern Europe torn by war and the Holocaust to reach the highest echelons of American government as Secretary of State under President Clinton. Her memoir will cover her childhood and emigration, her role as wife and mother of three daughters, the painful breakdown of her marriage, and her life in politics. She will bring to life the world leaders and politicians she worked with intimately in her years in public service. She will talk very candidly about the real difficulties of being the only woman at the table and the battles she had to fight to prove her worth. And at a time when the US is examining the legacy of its policy in the Middle East during the Clinton Administration, Secretary Albright's testimony will provide essential listening-throwing light on the key players, explaining and exploring foreign policy for the non-specialist.
