Condoleezza Rice, one of the most prominent and popular politicians of the 21st century, knows first-hand what it means to fight for democracy in this ever-changing and ever-frightening world. She used to be the secretary of state and is now ready to share her thoughts and notes on the international fight for democracy.
Today, the United States are the strongest advocates for human freedom, but they need to "up their game" to ensure a bright and beautiful future for the next generations. This book is equally thought-provoking, educational and insightful. At the same time, it's also heartfelt and touching, which makes it an easy and rewarding read. You don't even have to be a big fan of the Democrats to appreciate what Rice stands for.
This woman has been on the forefront of it all, from the Cold War days to the falling of the once-mighty USSR to the never-ending struggle for human rights all over the world. Yes, she'd been working tirelessly to make a change, and it all started back when she was a little girl. As a kid, she witnessed her hometown turn into the heart and core of the civil right movement for racial equality.
True, this country has more than enough issues to handle, and there's a lot of work to be done here, but America is still doing everything in its power to help people from around the globe and to protect the values of true Democracy. Rice did a great job of explaining in plain and simple English that we all need to join forces and stand for what we believe in. The bottom line is - if you're a conscious citizen and are interested in politics & social sciences, Democracy will find a prominent place in your library.
