"To its credit, Clinton's memoir is serious, sober and substantive....No fair-minded reader could finish this book and doubt Clinton's essential command of the issues, whatever one might think of her solutions for them. She roams widely and delves into war and peace, terrorism and Russia, economic development and women's rights. She knows the players and the history."--Peter Baker "New York Times Book Review "Vom Verlag:
The many dramatic moments of Secretary Hillary Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State frame her thoughts about the recent history of US foreign policy and the urgent, on-going need for American leadership in a changing world. In this truly global work, Hillary Clinton writes about her role in, and reflects on, such critical events as the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the overthrow of the Qaddafi regime in Libya, the transitions in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Arab Spring, the pivot to the Asia-Pacific, the rise of new powers such as China, Brazil, Turkey and India, the building of diplomatic coalitions to deal with Iran and North Korea, and America's relations with important allies around the world. Secretary Clinton also addresses many of the major trends reshaping the global landscape of the 21st century including trends in economics, energy and climate change, democracy and human rights, the critical role of women and girls, technology and innovation, and health and human development. Throughout, Secretary Clinton offers vivid personal anecdotes and memories of her collaboration with President Obama and his National Security team, as well as her engagement with leaders around the world.

Buchbeschreibung Simon & Schuster, 2014. Gebundene Ausgabe. Buchzustand: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Sehr gut Sg - leichte Beschädigungen, Verschmutzungen, ungelesenes Mängelexemplar, gestempelt, Schnellversand per DPD - Hillary Rodham Clinton's inside account of the crises, choices, and challenges she faced during her four years as America's 67th Secretary of State, and how those experiences drive her view of the future. 'All of us face hard choices in our lives,' Hillary Rodham Clinton writes at the start of this personal chronicle of years at the center of world events. 'Life is about making such choices. Our choices and how we handle them shape the people we become.' In the aftermath of her 2008 presidential run, she expected to return to representing New York in the United States Senate. To her surprise, her former rival for the Democratic Party nomination, newly elected President Barack Obama, asked her to serve in his administration as Secretary of State. This memoir is the story of the four extraordinary and historic years that followed, and the hard choices that she and her colleagues confronted. Secretary Clinton and President Obama had to decide how to repair fractured alliances, wind down two wars, and address a global financial crisis. They faced a rising competitor in China, growing threats from Iran and North Korea, and revolutions across the Middle East. Along the way, they grappled with some of the toughest dilemmas of US foreign policy, especially the decision to send Americans into harm's way, from Afghanistan to Libya to the hunt for Osama bin Laden. By the end of her tenure, Secretary Clinton had visited 112 countries, traveled nearly one million miles, and gained a truly global perspective on many of the major trends reshaping the landscape of the twenty-first century, from economic inequality to climate change to revolutions in energy, communications, and health. Drawing on conversations with numerous leaders and experts, Secretary Clinton offers her views on what it will take for the United States to compete and thrive in an interdependent world. She makes a passionate case for human rights and the full participation in society of women, youth, and LGBT people. An astute eyewitness to decades of social change, she distinguishes the trendlines from the headlines and describes the progress occurring throughout the world, day after day. Secretary Clinton's descriptions of diplomatic conversations at the highest levels offer readers a master class in international relations, as does her analysis of how we can best use 'smart power' to deliver security and prosperity in a rapidly changing world - one in which America remains the indispensable nation. 656 pp. Englisch.
