Condoleezza Rice Lands Book Deal for ‘An Examination of Democracy’

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has inked a book deal to write “an examination of democracy at home and abroad.” Henry Holt and Company will publish the book in 2015.

The deal was announced today (March 19th), the 10th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq–a political situation Rice negotiated throughout her time in public office. Wayne Kabak at WSK Management negotiated the deal with publisher Stephen Rubin. EIC Gillian Blake will edit. Here’s more from the release:

The book will discuss the never-ending process of building democracy as citizens – and their governments – strive to attain and secure the ideals of self-rule. Rice will draw upon stories from her career and personal life to shed light on the essential questions of contemporary democracy, including the centrality of education, immigration, free enterprise and civic responsibility. She will also address American’s destiny as a beacon for global freedom.

In 2009, Rice inked a three-book deal with Crown Publishers. The AP reported that the deal was “worth at least $2.5 million.”
