Kim_Ghattas_webKim Ghattas, who has covered the U.S. State Department for the BBC since 2008, has written a gracious, nuanced book about Hillary Clinton’s years as Secretary of State. Ghattas logged 300,000 miles as she traveled with Clinton to 40 countries. In that time, she conducted 18 interviews with Clinton.

The result is a portrait that infuses policy with personality. Ghattas shows Clinton building personal relationships with global leaders, details her seemingly boundless energy, and summarizes her achievement: “Working with the United States had once again become desirable.”
