Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great work on diplomacy at the UN I am glad I read this before attending the UN General Assembly General Debate. Kirkpatrick set the bar high for Albright, Rice, Power and Haley. It would have been interesting to get her take on the current geopolitical situation. Highly recommended for those interested in how the world works at the UN dais.
