School Library Journal Review

Gr 8 Up-In 1996, Albright became the first woman in history to be Secretary of State, the fourth-highest ranking position in U.S. government. This biography conveys Albright's intelligence, diplomacy, and patriotism as effectively as Jeremy Byman's affecting Madam Secretary (Morgan Reynolds, 1997), though for an older audience. Hasday goes into great detail about the European history that shaped her subject's early life and explores her experience of learning as an adult that her family converted to Catholicism from Judaism, and that her grandparents had been killed by Nazis. This section includes photographs of concentration-camp prisoners. There are also many black-and-white photos of Albright as a child, of her family, and of the Secretary of State at work. Good for assignments year-round, and especially valuable for women's history month.-Rebecca O'Connell, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
