HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON TO AUTHOR NEW BOOK CHRONICLING KEY MOMENTS DURING HER TIME AS SECRETARY OF STATE
Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will publish a new book with Simon & Schuster, sharing key decisions and experiences as Secretary of State and her ideas for how the United States can address the challenges of a dramatically changing world in the 21st century.
“Hillary Clinton has redefined the meaning of ‘trailblazer’ in every phase of her career on the world stage, as First Lady, Senator, Secretary of State, and notably, as an author,” said Carolyn Reidy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Simon & Schuster, Inc.
The yet-to-be titled book will use a number of dramatic moments during Secretary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State to frame her thoughts about the recent history of U.S. foreign policy and the urgent, ongoing need for American leadership in a changing world. She will write about her role in, and reflections on, such recent 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 like China, Brazil, Turkey, and India; building diplomatic coalitions to deal with Iran and North Korea; and our relations with important allies around the world.
The book will also address many of the major trends reshaping the global landscape of the 21st century – trends in economics, energy and climate change, democracy and human rights, the critical role of women and girls, technology and innovation, health and human development, and more.
