Audible Editor Reviews

Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was a strong advocate of democracy and human rights during her years at the White House, and in this interview with Foreign Affairs magazine editor James F. Hoge, Jr., she expresses her dismay at how democracy is now being equated to imperialism. Albright is passionate about resurrecting democracy's good name, and she brings up the points from her book Memo to the President Elect: How We Can Restore America’s Reputation and Leadership with little fanfare and in a forthright tone shot through with wit.
