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. 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. 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 listeners 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. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kathleen Chalfant, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/sans/006754/bk_sans_006754_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

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 centre of world events. 'Life is about making such choices.

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,0, Free University of Berlin, language: English, abstract: George H.W. Bush George Bush, a New England aristocrat partially transplanted to Texas, entered politics after almost two decades in the oil business. He was born on 12 June 1924 in Massachusetts, and grew up in a wealthy New York suburb. Bush followed his father's example in switching from financial success in business to politics. He was and unsuccessful Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate from Texas in 1964 and 1970, was elected to the House of Representatives in 1966 and again in 1968. After losing the race for the Senate in 1970, Bush was appointed by Presidents Nixon and Ford to a succession of important positions: U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, chairman of the RNC, liaison to China, and director of the CIA. In January 1977 Bush resigned as head of the CIA and returned to Texas, where he began campaigning for the presidency in 1978. However, he lost the nomination to the more glamorous and conservative Ronald Reagan, who later picked him to be his running mate for the office of vice-president. The Reagan-Bush ticket won easily in 1980, and 1984. Michael Dukakis Michael Dukakis's political strength, and the reason he won the Democratic nomination in 1988, was the fact that very different kinds of Democrats and liberals could project their hopes onto him. At heart, the Governor of Massachusetts was an old-style Democrat. Dukakis's style was that of the upper-middle-class reformers who were now so important to the Democratic nominating process. Yet Dukakis was also a Greek American, the 'son of immigrants,' as he would say over and over. His approach to government was intensely serious and mistrustful of politics-as-usual.
