Is there a linkage between "smart power" and Hillary Clinton's leadership style? Can she advance American leadership and women's development worldwide? The Global Hillary addresses these questions and many others. Bringing together two key aspects of Clinton's ongoing career-her advocacy for international women's rights and the mission to foster democratic development around the world-The Global Hillary critically analyzes Clinton's role as a transformative leader of global influence. Essays in this collection provide insight into Clinton's leadership style, particularly her use of American "smart power" in foreign policy, while examining her impact on the continuing worldwide struggle for women's rights. Using international perspectives on the historical and cultural contexts of Clinton's leadership, this book also looks toward the future of women's political leadership in the 21st century with special attention to the prospect of electing a woman to the United States presidency.
