Hillary Rodham Clinton’s memoir, which she is currently in the process of writing, is scheduled to be released June 2014.
The book, which is still untitled, will discuss her years as secretary of state, including issues such as the killing of Osama bin Laden, Arab Spring, and climate change. As Simon & Schuster Publishing Group stated, "[Clinton] will share her views as to what it takes for the United States to secure and sustain prosperity and global leadership. Throughout, Secretary Clinton will offer vivid personal anecdotes and memories of her collaboration with President Obama and his national security team, as well as her engagement with leaders around the world.” However, there is much speculation as to what Clinton will discuss and what she will not. AP reports that it is unclear whether she will address the Benghazi attack, and a source familiar with the book stated that Clinton had no plans to address her presidential run in 2008 or any possible future presidential run in 2016.
Much attention, though, is being focused on this book release as many are speculating on whether Clinton will run in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton’s book also continues the tradition of former secretary of state memoirs, which include Dean Acheson’s Present at the Creation, which won the Pulitzer Prize, and memoirs by Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albright, and Condoleezza Rice. Alongside the publication of her book, Clinton will also be going on a book tour around the United States to promote her memoir in June 2014.
Clinton has already established herself as an author, and her latest book, Living History, was a million-seller. As Jonathan Karp, president and publisher of Simon & Schuster, stated, “Hillary Clinton’s extraordinary public service has given her a unique perspective on recent history and the challenges we face. This will be the ultimate book for people who are interested in world affairs and America’s place in the world today.”
