Susan Rice was President Barack Obama’s national security advisor and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. In her new memoir, Tough Love: My Story of the Things Worth Fighting For, Rice reveals pivotal moments from her career on the front lines of U.S. diplomacy and foreign policy with unflinching candor. Mother, wife, scholar, diplomat, and fierce champion of American interests and values, Rice powerfully connects the personal and the professional. Taught early, with tough love, how to compete and excel as an African American woman in settings where people of color are few, Rice shares the wisdom she learned along the way.
In a conversation with Andrea Mitchell about her book, Rice will share her personal story as well as examine the current state of foreign affairs and the challenges facing American leadership. What are the greatest threats to democracy around the world? To what extent does our current approach to foreign policy advance or endanger our national security? How do we repair our relationships with our democratic allies?
