Synopsis

On 26 January 2005, Condoleezza Rice became the 66th Secretary of State of the USA (only the second woman to fill the role), a testament to George W. Bush's faith in her abilities, and to her own astonishing determination. Previously, as Bush's National Security Advisor and closest political confidant, Rice played a pivotal and high profile role at the heart of the White House, was central spokesperson for the Bush administration's controversial post 9/11 foreign policy; making its case against Saddam; testifying before the 9/11 commission and personally tackling criticism of the administration's mishandling of pre-9/11 intelligence, as well as campaigning for Bush's re-election.

Drawn from interviews with relatives, colleagues and friends of Rice, this book charts her extraordinary journey from a poor childhood in segregation-era Alabama, through a distinguished academic career as a professor and youngest ever provost of Stanford, her position as foreign policy advisor to the first President Bush, up to her current key role in the US Government - and assesses the tantalising possibility of a Condoleezza Rice/ Hillary Clinton race for the White House at the next presidential election. This is an engaging and remarkable portrait of a compelling figure in world politics.

Antonia Felix has written biographies of Wesley Clark and Laura Bush. She lives near Kansas City, Missouri.
