    What People are Saying About This

    Fareed Zakaria

    Anne-Marie Slaughter has written a book that will educate and inspire all Americans. At a time when many claim that we cannot afford the luxury of our liberties, she explains why America's values remain vital, how they can be preserved and strengthened, and what it means to live by these ideals. This book should be required reading for every citizen. (Fareed Zakaria, author of The Future of Freedom and editor, Newsweek International)

    Madeleine K. Albright

    The Idea That is America is a brilliant book, deeply moving, exquisitely timed, authored by one of our country's leading scholars.

    George P. Shultz

    Read this book and be challenged to think about, to aspire to, and to work for American values.

    Samantha Power

    If an American renaissance is to happen, Anne-Marie Slaughter shows, it will be because US leaders and citizens return to the bedrock ideals that fueled the American dream. In this forceful and necessary book, Slaughter elegantly mines pivotal moments in US history for contemporary insight, and she shows that leaders who take heed of law and justice, and who proceed with humility, can leave behind a more peaceful and just America, and a more stable world. (Samantha Power, Anna Lindh Professor of Practice of Global Leadership and Public Policy, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "A Problem from Hell": America and the Age of Genocide)

    Zbigniew Brzezinski

    Slaughter's book focuses on an important theme and one close to my heart: the relationship between power and principle. Her arguments, stated with passionate conviction and intellectual clarity, appeal both to my heart and to my reason.

    Niall Ferguson

    Passionately argued, yet plainly written, The Idea that is America is part credo, part manifesto—a wholehearted return to first principles by one of America's most talented and distinguished legal minds. Anne-Marie Slaughter's analysis of the U.S. constitution and its legacy encapsulates the liberal interpretation of American history, while her recommendations point the way to a paradigm shift in American foreign policy. (Niall Ferguson, Laurence A. Tisch Professor of History, Harvard University and author of The War of the World and Colossus)
