About this Item

Title
Memo to the President-Elect: How We Can Restore America's Reputation and Leadership
Summary
The president faces daunting tasks in shaping and maintaining America's core relationships with other nations around the world. In her new book, Madeleine Albright, United States secretary of state from 1997 to 2001, offers guidance for the occupant of the White House--and insights for voters to think about when deciding who that person should be. Much more than a set of policy prescriptions, Albright's writing blends lessons from the past with forward-looking suggestions about how to assemble a first-rate foreign policy team, anticipate the actions of other key countries, make full use of presidential power and revive America's commitment to its founding ideals. Drawing on her extensive experience as an advisor to two presidents and a key figure in four presidential transitions, she provides an insider's analysis of U.S. options in addressing the decisive issues of our era.
