Shell Distinguished Lecture Series -- 66th U.S. Secretary of State Condolezza Rice Discusses "No Higher Honor: A Memoir of My Years in Washington"

"No Higher Honor" takes the reader into secret negotiating rooms where the fates of Israel, the Palestinian Authority and Lebanon often hung in the balance, and draws back the curtain on how frighteningly close all-out war loomed during clashes involving Pakistan and India, Russia and Georgia, and East Africa.

Surprisingly candid in her appraisals of various administration colleagues and the hundreds of foreign leaders with whom she dealt, former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice"s new book offers keen insight into how history actually proceeds. In "No Higher Honor," she delivers a master class in statecraft -- revealing her deep reverence for the ideals on which America was founded.

This event is part of the Baker Institute Shell Distinguished Lecture Series. The institute is pleased to partner with the HoustonPBS/KUHT-TV Elevate Lecture Series, sponsored by the John P. McGovern Foundation.
