The Baker Institute hosted former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2011, as part of the Baker Institute Shell Distinguished Lecture Series

She discussed and signed copies of her new book "No Higher Honor," which 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.

The institute was pleased to partner with the HoustonPBS/KUHT-TV Elevate Lecture Series, sponsored by the John P. McGovern Foundation, for this event.
