      At a moment when so many democracies appear beleaguered, Rice’s book presents an inspiring dose of hope. The stories that the former U.S. secretary of state tells all advance a central message: the desire for political rights and self-rule is deeply rooted in the human condition. But the book’s focus is political struggle and the contingent character of democratic movements: history, Rice. Today more than half of all countries qualify as democracies, and in the long run that number will continue to grow. Yet nothing worthwhile ever comes easily. Using America's long struggle as a template, Rice draws lessons for democracy around the world -- from Russia, Poland, and Ukraine, to Kenya, Colombia, and the Middle East.
