The mighty and the Almighty : reflections on America, God, and world affairs by Madeleine Korbel Albright( Book )

32 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Dutch and held by 2,662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The mighty and the almighty, Madeleine Albright examines the profound impact of religion on America's view of itself, the effect on U.S. policy of the rise of the Christian right, the Bush administration's successes and failures in responding to 9/11, the challenges posed by the war in Iraq, and the importance of understanding Islam. She offers a balanced but, when necessary, devastating analysis of U.S. strategy, and condemns those of all faiths who exploit religious fervor to create divisions or enhance their own power. In this illuminating account, Albright argues that, to be effective, U.S. policy makers must understand the power and place of religion in motivating others and in coloring how American actions are perceived. Defying the conventional wisdom, she suggests not only that religion and politics are inseparable, but that their partnership, when properly harnessed, can be a force for justice and peace

In support of Arab democracy : why and how : report of an independent task force by Council on Foreign Relations( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past five decades, U.S. policy in the Arab world has been predicated largely on the notion that the political status quo in the region best served Washington's interests. With the assistance of Arab partners such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Bahrain, Kuwait, and Morocco, the United States built a remarkably good record of achieving its objectives-- notably, protecting the free flow of oil from the Persian Gulf, ensuring Israel's security, confronting rogue states, battling terrorism, and during the Cold War, containing Soviet influence in the region. Yet the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, DC, on September 11, 2001, challenged the underlying assumption of U.S. Middle East policy. Within a short time after the attacks, policymakers began to question whether authoritarian political systems in the Middle East were sources of stability or the primary causes of the political alienation and extremism that fueled organizations like al-Qaeda. The Bush administration clearly believes the best way to "drain the swamp" that produces terrorists is to promote democracy and reform more broadly in the Middle East. The Council on Foreign Relations established this Independent Task Force to consider whether promoting democracy in the Middle East is in the best interests of the United States and, if so, how Washington should implement such a policy
Prague winter : a personal story of remembrance and war, 1937-1948 by Madeleine Korbel Albright( Book )

33 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By turns harrowing and inspiring, "Prague Winter" is Madeleine Albright's account of her early life from 1937 to 1948, a dozen years that witnessed the Nazi invasion of her native Prague, World War II, the Holocaust, the defeat of fascism, the rise of communism, and the onset of the Cold War. Her experiences, and those of her family, provide a unique lens through which to view this tumultuous period in modern history. Moving from the thousand-year-old "Prague Castle" to the bomb shelters of London, from the desolate prison ghetto of "Terezin" to the war councils of Churchill, Stalin, Roosevelt and Hitler, Albright reflects on her discovery of her family's Jewish heritage decades after the war, her "Czech" homeland's tangled history, and the stark moral choices faced by her parents, ordinary citizens, and the leaders of their generation. Drawing on her memory, written reflections, newly-released documents, interviews with contemporaries, and other primary sources, she tells the story of how millions of ordinary citizens were ripped from familiar surroundings and forced into new roles as exiled leaders and foot soldiers, resistance figures and collaborators, victims and killers. Albright points out that the response to these life and death issues was often shaped by concepts familiar even to a child like Madeleine had been at the time: fear, trust, adaptation, the search for identity, the pressure to conform, and the difference between right and wrong. As universal as it is deeply personal, "Prague Winter" offers a unique perspective on World War II, the relationship between generations, and the impact of time on our assessment of the truth. Emotionally compelling and often startling in its frankness, this volume is a guide to the future through the lessons of the past, as seen through the eyes of one of the world's most respected and fascinating figures
TEDTalks : Madeleine Albright - On Being a Woman and a Diplomat( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since leaving the office of U.S. Secretary of State in 2001, Madeleine Albright has continued her distinguished career in foreign affairs as a political adviser, professor, and businesswoman. In this TEDTalk she speaks bluntly about politics and diplomacy, making the case that women's issues deserve a place at the center of foreign policy. Far from being "soft" concerns, says Albright, the strengths and vulnerabilities of women around the world are linked to profound, life-or-death struggles

Madam Secretary by Madeleine Korbel Albright( Recording )

Refreshingly candid, 'Madam Secretary' brings to life the world leaders Albright dealt with intimately in her years of service and the battles she fought to prove her worth in a male-dominated arena. We also get to know Albright the private woman: her life raising three daughters and the painful breakup of her marriage. This is a rich memoir, destined to become a classic
