Albright To Pen Books


Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, author of a best-selling memoir, has reached an agreement with HarperCollins to write two books.

The first book, "The Mighty and the Almighty, will be published next spring and will concentrate on religion and its role in international policy.

"Secretary Albright's thoughts on the complexities of foreign policy in an age of religious extremism are required reading: bold, frank, clearly argued and informed by experience. This will be a powerful and enlightening contribution to our understanding of the present crisis," HarperCollins senior vice president and publisher Jonathan Burnham said Monday in a statement.

Burnham worked on Albright's memoir, "Madam Secretary," when he was president and editor-in- chief at Miramax Books. Albright served as secretary of state from 1997 to 2001.

Her second publication, currently untitled, "will be an illustrated book on Albright's collection of decorative pins of historical and personal significance," according to HarperCollins.

You Said

Whatever. I'm still p.o.ed over her bragging that "she" (the U.S.) had troops in every country in the world but seven--and those seven didn't have runways or she would have had them there too.

Technically speaking, she did have US troops in every nation. US Marines guard every embassy.

Gag! Indeed, her book should be read as a set of object lessons in how not to conduct foreign policy.

She's a b***h, plain and simple and I expect she's gonna have some hell to pay somewhere, someday.
