Autobiography of former secretary of state

Excellent and quite readable. Closest thing we'll ever get to an eyewitness history of the Czech people, from fabled times to post-WWII. Czechoslovakia was affected by each large nation. Therefore we can see the climate of the times through what happened to the middle-sized nations in between them.

Includes details of the lives and deaths of the author's Jewish relatives in German concentration camps. Also includes details of her father's work as an ambassador and radio broadcaster for the BBC during WWII. Interesting details regarding what Ms. Albright discovered in her position as U.S. Secretary of State.

I wonder if there will now be a followup volume entitled, "Prague Spring."
