Condoleezza Rice, the Thomas and Barbara Stephenson Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution and a professor of political science at Stanford University, is featured in Newsweek in a talk with Christopher Dickey about the fight for democratic rights and highlighting excerpts from her new memoir No Higher Honor: A Memoir of My Years in Washington. “We pursued the Freedom Agenda not only because it was right but also because it was necessary,” Rice writes in her book. “There is both a moral case and a practical one for the proposition that no man, woman, or child should live in tyranny. Those who excoriated the approach as idealistic or unrealistic missed the point. In the long run, it is authoritarianism that is unstable and unrealistic.” She discusses the aftermath of the September 11 attacks, her feelings after Hurricane Katrina, and her role as a crisis manager in relations with other countries.
