Twice as good : Condoleezza Rice and the path to power /

The first biography of Rice to reveal the private, driven woman behind the public image. Beyond the dramatic story of Rice's past--her ascent from segregated Alabama to the halls of power--and the controversy of her present, little is known about her as a person, and while she has broken barriers and achieved extraordinary success, she is also one of the most polarizing figures of our time. As an African American girl growing up in the South when the civil rights movement was at its most tumultuous and inspiring, her own views on race are complex. While she has benefited from advances in civil rights legislation and evolving acceptance of blacks, hers has been a singularly individualistic rise, the product of her parents' determination to make her "special."--Publisher description.
