Madeline Albright totally threw me for a loop with this one; not only did she re-establish her relevance, even as a sidelines commentator, in the foreign policy arena, but she also proved that her ideas are still applicable today, though proved may be the wrong word. There's no proof of such a thing, but the insinuation is certainly there, and I immediately believed it.

She's a lot more "wide-scope" than I imagined her to be, a refreshing trait for a statesperson (though shouldn't that be the norm), and this book not only provided a nice little history refresher, but in the specific context about which she's interested she explores the decades old hurts and issues that are just now coming to a head. Scary enough, but really enthralling read.
