Madam Secretary: A Memoir is the autobiography of United States Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, published in 2003. It covers both her life and the eight years she spent in the Clinton administration, first as United States Ambassador to the United Nations and then as head of the State Department. The book's title reflects the term of address for a female governmental secretary. A national bestseller on its publication in 2003, Madam Secretary is a riveting account of the life of America's first woman Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright. For eight years, during Bill Clinton's two presidential terms, Albright was a high-level participant in some of the most dramatic events of our time—from the pursuit of peace in the Middle East to NATO's intervention in the Balkans to America's troubled relations with Iran and Iraq. In this thoughtful memoir, one of the most admired women in U.S. history reflects on her remarkable personal story, including her upbringing in war-torn Europe and the balancing of career and family responsibilities, and on America's leading role in a changing world.
American Friends Service Committee, 1951. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. 64 pages. Cover has some wear and soiling. Includes Preface, Introduction, and Conclusion. Chapters cover What Are the Ultimate Objectives of the American People in International Affairs? Is Our Present Foreign Policy Leading Us to These Objectives?; Why Has Our Policy Failed? An Alternative Program, New Initiative for Peaceful Settlements, The Essential Role of the United Nations; Disarmament and the International Control of Arms; and Development of Large-Scale Programs of Mutual Aid. The authors of the report felt compelled to speak out of a deep sense of moral concern: Even if we had no knowledge of other nations, and no experience in struggling against evil, we should still feel compelled to speak out. For with increasing disturbance of soul we have watched the hardening of public opinion, and the easy acceptance of the doctrine of force. In the clamor and clash of a hating world, people are forgetting moral values, which are as relevant today as they were in Jesus' time. But even on pragmatic grounds, we reject the concept that peace can emerge from an arms race, or that problems can be solved by dropping A-bombs. Is there no answer to coercive communism other than coercive militarism? God forbid.
