Hillary Rodham Clinton Lands Book Deal for Memoir

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will write a new memoir for Simon & Schuster, a book focused on “key decisions and experiences as Secretary of State.”  Publication is set for 2014.

Williams & Connolly attorney Robert B. Barnett negotiated the deal with publisher Carolyn ReidyJonathan Karp will edit the book for Simon & Schuster’s trade imprint. Here’s more about the book:

The yet-to-be titled book will use a number of dramatic moments during Secretary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State to frame her thoughts about the recent history of U.S. foreign policy and the urgent, ongoing need for American leadership in a changing world.  She will write about her role in, and reflections on, such recent events as the killing of Osama Bin Laden; the overthrow of the Qaddafi regime in Libya; the transitions in Iraq and Afghanistan; the Arab Spring; the pivot to the Asia-Pacific; the rise of new powers like China, Brazil, Turkey, and India; building diplomatic coalitions to deal with Iran and North Korea; and our relations with important allies around the world.

Clinton has written four books, publishing with Simon & Schuster each time. They included  It takes a Village in 1996 and Living History in 2003. Earlier this year, we speculated about the subjects Clinton’s new book will address.
