Overview

Bill Richardson, governor of New Mexico, is widely regarded as one of the most charismatic figures in the Democratic Party, and one of the country's best natural politicians - a man who has been nominated four times for the Nobel Peace Prize and who is counted as an expert on everything from Iraq to Al Qaida to North Korea, from energy policy to domestic politics to Hispanic America.

But there is a great deal more to Richardson than most people know. Between Worlds tells the story of a man indeed between worlds. Between cultures, as he grew up the son of an American businessman father and a Mexican mother, reared in Mexico City, educated in a prep school in New England, and shaped by the Southwest. Between countries, as he constantly has traveled the world, negotiating hand-to-hand and face-to-face with the likes of Saddam Hussein, Fidel Castro, and North Korean authorities, with sometimes startling results.

Between job endeavors, as he has found himself jumping, sometimes at a moment's notice, from the official - congressman, Cabinet member, United Nations ambassador, governor - to the unofficial - a global troubleshooter dispatched to sit down with some of the worst dictators and despots of our time.
