Gr 4-7Maass provides a biographical sketch of his subject and a look at her life as the American Ambassador to the UN, and ends with a discussion of what the UN is, focusing in particular on the functions of the Security Council and the General Assembly. All these facets are well integrated into the presentation, making the book useful for many report topics. The full-color photographs of Albright at work are wonderful in that they appear to honestly depict her professional life. Readers get to see her in a hurry, on TV, with celebrities, tired, on the phone, etc. It's enlightening to see in the pictures what is eaten at a breakfast meeting and to get a sense of how her job is not only fast paced, but also requires a large amount of input from various people. Other photos give insight into what UN work areas look like and the variety of people Albright encounters on a regular basis. More than a biography, this realistic study presents lots of information about the UN and what a career as an ambassador entails.Melissa Gross, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA
