From one of the world's most admired women, this is former national security advisor and secretary of state Condoleezza Rice's compelling story of eight years serving at the highest levels of government.
A native of Birmingham, Alabama, who overcame the racism of the civil rights era to become a brilliant academic and expert on foreign affairs, Rice first distinguished herself as an advisor to George W. Bush during the 2000 presidential campaign, and eventually became one of his closest confidantes. Once he was elected, she served first as his chief advisor on national security issues and later as America's chief diplomat. From the aftermath of September II, 2001, when she stood at the center of the administration's efforts to protect the nation, to her efforts as secretary of state to manage the world's volatile relationships with North Korea, Iran, and Libya, her service to America led her to confront some of the worst crises the country has ever faced. This is her unflinchingly honest story of that remarkable time, from what really went on behind dosed doors when history was being made to her candid appraisal of her colleagues and contemporaries. In No Higher Honor, Condoleezza Rice delivers a master class in statecraft—but always in a way that reveals her essential warmth and humility and her deep reverence for the ideals on which America was founded.
"Important . . . Her stories add texture to the well-known history . . . sometimes movingly so."
—Wall Street Journal
"Fascinating . . . Rice's account of the immediate aftermath, as seen from inside the halls of the White House, is both vivid and disturbing."
CONDOLEEZZA RICE was the sixty-sixth U.S. secretary of state and the first black woman to hold that office. Prior to that, she was the first woman to serve as national security advisor. She is a professor at Stanford University and co-founder of RimHadleyGatm LLC. Rice is also the author of the Nero York Times bestselling Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family.
