內容簡介

人生充滿抉擇,而形塑我們的,正是我們面對挑戰時的態度與作為。

由人們引頸期盼的2016年美國總統大熱門,美國政治史上成就最高的第一夫人—希拉蕊親筆寫作,娓娓為讀者道來她政治路上的風暴與跌宕。

2008年,經歷了黨內提名失利之後,眾人本預計希拉蕊將重回紐約參議員的職務,但在對手歐巴馬的邀請之下,她接下了美國國務卿的重責大任。本書便詳細記載了在擔任國務卿的歲月中,遭逢的種種危機;從國內的經濟危機、政治困局,到國際上中國的挑戰與北韓、伊朗的崛起威脅,以及派兵至阿富汗、利比亞,和獵殺賓拉登的艱難抉擇。任內出訪112個國家,她除了心繫國際政治局勢,也致力於女人、青年和LGBT等人權議題。希拉蕊對世界的影響力與關心,讓她成為蓋洛普統計的「世界最受尊敬的女性」,與《富比世》雜誌「世界最有權勢女性」。

囊括與國際間權力最高層的交流,並以她精明的視線呈現國際關係與社會情勢的真實面貌。本書不僅將打開讀者的視野看見國際,亦能窺探一位卓越政治女性的內心;為希拉蕊的國務卿生涯與成就下了最好的註解,一探她的艱難抉擇與不凡作為,並展望未來的世界趨勢。

《Hard Choices》一書版權已引起世界各國爭相搶購,中文版譯為《抉擇》,亦將於六月份由商業週刊出版,席捲書市。

Hillary Rodham Clinton's inside account of the crises, choices and challenges she faced during her four years as America s 67th Secretary of State, and how those experiences drive her view of the future.


'All of us face hard choices in our lives,' Hillary Rodham Clinton writes at the start of this personal chronicle of years at the centre of world events. 'Life is about making such choices. Our choices and how we handle them shape the people we become.'

In the aftermath of her 2008 presidential run, she expected to return to representing New York in the Unites States Senate. To her surprise, her formal rival for the Democratic Party nomination, newly elected President Barack Obama, asked her to serve in his administration as Secretary of State. This memoir is the story of the four extraordinary and historic years that followed, and the hard choices that she and her colleagues confronted.

Secretary Clinton and President Obama had to decide how to repair fractured alliances, wind down two wars and address a global financial crisis. They faced a rising competitor in China, growing threats from Iran and North Korea, and revolutions across the Middle East. Along the way, they grappled with some of the toughest dilemmas of US foreign policy, especially the decision to send Americans into harm's way, from Afghanistan to Libya to the hunt for Osama bin Laden.
By the end of her tenure, Secretary Clinton had visited 112 countries, travelled nearly one million miles and gained a truly global perspective on many of the major trends reshaping the landscape of the twenty-first century, from economic inequality to climate change to revolutions in energy, communications and health. Drawing on conversations with numerous leaders and experts, Secretary Clinton offers her views on what it will take for the United States to compete and thrive in an interdependent world. She makes a passionate case for human rights and the full participation in society of girls, youth and LGBT people. An astute eyewitness to decades of social change, she distinguishes the trendlines from the headlines and describes the progress occurring throughout the world, day after day.

Secretary Clinton's descriptions of diplomatic conversations at the highest levels offer readers a masterclass in international relations, as does her analysis of how we can best use 'smart power' to deliver security and prosperity in a rapidly changing world - one in which America remains the indispensable nation.
