Summary of Hard Choices
From HARD CHOICES by Hillary Rodham Clinton. Copyright © 2014 by Hillary Rodham Clinton. Reprinted by permission of Simon & Schuster Inc., NY
Hillary Rodham Clinton details her experiences as head of the US State Department.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, former first lady and US senator and America’s 67th secretary of state, recounts her eventful tenure as the nation’s top diplomat. She describes the challenges and choices she faced while applying US “smart power” around the world. You’ll gain a deeper appreciation for the intricacies and frustrations of international relations – and for America’s career diplomats, who toil without recognition, often in danger. Clinton writes at greater length than necessary, but each chapter is neatly contained; you can selectively read those of greatest interest to you. Though always politically neutral, getAbstract recommends the insights of this ultimate insider on energy and international trade to businesspeople, policy-makers, entrepreneurs and NGOs, and her discussions of Iran, Russia, Syria and Gaza to anyone who follows the news. As to the burning question about whether Clinton’s memoir is a prelude to her potential presidential run – well, it couldn’t hurt.
In this summary, you will learn
- How former US secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton worked to apply US “smart power” in challenging situations worldwide
- What problems she believes the US and the international community must handle in the future
