No Higher Honor: Memoirs of Condoleezza Rice’s Years in Washington

Former national security advisor and secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice publishes her memoir, “No Higher Honor: A Memoir of My Years in Washington” on Nov. 1. The cover photo for the book was released by Crown last Thursday.

In No Higher Honor, Rice shares her unique perspective on the most consequential political, diplomatic, and security issues of the administration. In her own words, she describes the harrowing terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and chronicles her experience of appearing before the 9/11 Commission, for which she was broadly saluted for her grace and forthrightness. She also reveals new details about the contentious debates in the lead-up to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.”

Rice’s latest effort follows on last year’s “Extraordinary, Ordinary People: A Memoir of Family,” which told of her upbringing in segregation-era Birmingham, Ala., and the impact of her parents on her life.
