Does America, as George W. Bush has proclaimed, have a special mission, derived from God, to bring liberty and democracy to the world? How much influence does the Christian right have over U.S. foreign policy? And how should America and the West deal with violent Islamist extremists? Traditionally, politicians have sought to downplay the impact of religious beliefs in international affairs. In this illuminating first hand account, one of the most renowned figures in American politics argues that understanding the place and power of religion, and knowing how best to respond to it, is essential if America is to lead successfully around the world.

Here, Madeleine Albright examines religion and foreign affairs through the lens of American history as well as her own personal experiences in public office, with a preface and opening chapters specially written for the UK edition. She offers a sharp critique of U.S. policy, condemnation for those who exploit religious fervor for violent ends, and praise for political, cultural, and spiritual leaders who seek to harness the values of faith to bring people together.

Albright has written a thought provoking work that calls for bold leadership to rein in the many religious rivalries around the globe and lay the groundwork for a new moral consensus. Learned, eloquent and thoughtful Much of what she says seems obvious except that it obviously hasn't been followed' Raymond Seitz, Sunday Telegraph.
