"SENDING THOSE WHO SERVE OUR NATION INTO HARM'S WAY IS ONE OF THE HARDEST CHOICES OUR COUNTRY AND LEADERS EVER HAVE TO MAKE": HARD CHOICES, SIGNED BY HILLARY CLINTON
CLINTON, Hillary Rodham. Hard Choices. New York: Simon & Schuster, (2014). Thick octavo, original half black paper boards, photographic endpapers, original dust jacket. $500.
First edition of Clinton's second volume of memoirs, signed "Hillary" in blue ink on the title page.
Clinton's second memoir covers the tail end of her 2008 presidential campaign and her four-year stint as Secretary of State. The bulk of the book is ordered geographically, covering her diplomatic trips to a variety of countries, with a final section covering modern political issues. "A subtle, finely calibrated work that provides a portrait of the former secretary of state and former first lady as a heavy-duty policy wonk. Compared with her 2003 memoir, Living History… Hard Choices is a statesmanlike document intended to attest to Mrs. Clinton's wide-ranging experience on national security and on foreign policy" (New York Times). With 48 pages of color photographs.
A fine signed copy.
