Summary
"In her memoir, Power offers an urgent response to the question "What can one person do?"--and a call for a clearer eye, a kinder heart, and a more open and civil hand in our politics and daily lives. The Education of an Idealist traces Power's distinctly American journey from immigrant to war correspondent to presidential Cabinet official." -- From Amazon.com summary.
An intimate, powerful, and galvanizing memoir by Pulitzer Prize winner and former UN Ambassador Samantha Power, widely known as a relentless advocate for promoting human rights, who has been heralded by President Barack Obama as one of America's "foremost thinkers on foreign policy.
