Condi: The Condoleezza Rice Story

Condi: The Condoleezza Rice Story (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


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.
