A biographical catastrophe with no intellectual merit!

The fact that this book even got published makes my head smart with incredulity; there is no political objectivity or critical analysis to be found anywhere on the printed pages nor is there any scholarly, in-depth research on the life of our country's first woman Secretary of State. In the author's eyes, if one can call him that, Madeline Albright is the goddess of the State Department, and that's that. This book is astounding in that it is so terrible; it is nothing but shoddy work -- a meandering diatribe that resembles a poorly written fifth grade book report. To say more would be a waste of space and time...

About this book

Wiki

Blood, CEO of a lobbying firm and a member of the Democratic National Committee, offers the first book-length account of the first woman appointed U.S. secretary of state. Focusing on the years Albright taught at Georgetown University through her high-profile tenure as United Nations ambassador, he gives excellent coverage to such matters as her role in the replacement of U.N. Secretary General Boutros Boutros Ghali and the behind-the-scenes events leading to her cabinet appointment. Though his account is detailed, Blood relies largely on newspaper and magazine interviews and articles for source material and does not give footnotes. For public libraries and women's studies collections.?Jill Ortner, SUNY at Buffalo
