In The mighty and the almighty, Madeleine Albright examines the profound impact of religion on America's view of itself, the effect on U.S. policy of the rise of the Christian right, the Bush administration's successes and failures in responding to 9/11, the challenges posed by the war in Iraq, and the importance of understanding Islam. She offers a balanced but, when necessary, devastating analysis of U.S. strategy, and condemns those of all faiths who exploit religious fervor to create divisions or enhance their own power. In this illuminating account, 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.… (mere)

Madeleine Albright was the first woman to be US Secretary of State, serving during President Bill Clinton's first administration. She is also a formidable intellect.

[The Mighty & the Almighty] is her take on the role religion plays in world diplomacy and how it cannot be discounted by even the most secular people when at the diplomatic negotiating table.

She does not have kind words for President George Bush's attack on Iraq after the attacks of 9/11, and although she writes pretty much what I was thinking at the time, she does point out where things were done well in response to those attacks.

This well-written book documents many of the ways countries, and groups, have done themselves a disservice in the name of "God." In turn lessons on history and diplomacy, Albright shows herself to be thoughtful and considerate throughout.

Published in 2006, I found myself wondering what she would have to say about what's happening in the world now, and what President Obama's role is/could have been. ( )

During the Cold War the world was divided into Soviet and Western Camps. After the collapse of communism we now discover that Religion has become an important matter in world diplomacy. Since 9/11 Religion and Religious extremism has become the dividing line.

Reflections on America God and World affairs. The author suggests not only that religion and poitics are inseparable, but that their partnership, when properly harnessed can be a force for justice and peace.

I made it through the first 50 pages or so. What I read was good, but it's not light summer reading. I'll tackle it again this winter.

An expertly written and wonderfully engaging tome covering not only her personal opinions on faith and the power of faith in public policy.
