The Mighty and the Almighty: Reflections on America, God, and World Affairs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The former US Secretary of State and bestselling author of Madam Secretary offers a provocative and personal look at the role of religion in America's foreign policy. In THE MIGHTY AND ALMIGHTY, Madeleine Albright examines religion and foreign affairs through the lens of American history as well as her own personal experiences in public office. She offers a sharp critique of U.S. policy, condemnation of those who exploit religious fervour for violent ends, and praise for political, cultural, and spiritual leaders who seek to harness the values of faith to bring people together. Often using new and telling examples from her own years in power, Albright has written a thought-provoking work that calls for bold leadership to rein in the many religious rivalries around the globe and lay the groundwork for a new moral consensus.

Synopsis:

Does America, as George W. Bush has proclaimed, have a special mission, derived from God, to bring liberty and democracy to the world? How much influence does the Christian right have over U.S. foreign policy? And how should America deal with violent Islamist extremists?

Madeleine Albright, the former secretary of state and bestselling author of Madam Secretary, offers a thoughtful and often surprising look at the role of religion in shaping America's approach to the world. Drawing upon her experiences while in office and her own deepest beliefs about morality, the United States, and the present state of world affairs, a woman noted for plain speaking offers her thoughts about the most controversial topics of our time.
