The Voice of Madeleine Albright

“I’m an optimist who worries a lot,” replied Madeleine Albright, the former US Secretary of State, when so often answering the question: “Are you an optimist or a pessimist?” Her voice, true to that of the worried optimist and transmitted by way of her interviews, speeches, and publications (6 books), will be heard as we learn of her life in exile during World War II, the discovery of her heritage, of her awakening to her responsibilities as a naturalized American citizen, her varied domestic and diplomatic roles, and her cleverly pointed sense of humor.
