Madeleine Albright, former secretary of state, offers a thoughtful look at the role of religion in shaping America's approach to the world. Drawing upon her experiences while in office and her own beliefs, she offers her thoughts about the most controversial topics of our time. In The Mighty and the Almighty, Albright argues that, to be effective, U.S. policy-makers must understand the power and place of religion in motivating others and in coloring how American actions are perceived. Defying the conventional wisdom, she suggests not only that religion and politics are inseparable, but that their partnership, when properly harnessed, can be a force for justice and peace. Hardcover.
