Professor Condoleezza Rice Signs Major Book Deal

Condoleezza Rice, the former secretary of state and national security adviser to the president, has returned to her tenured position at Stanford University. There she is a professor of political science and the Thomas and Barbara Stephenson Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution.

It was announced this past week that Professor Rice signed a three-book deal with Crown Publishers that will pay her at least $2.5 million. The first book will be a memoir of her years in the Bush administration and will touch on issues of American foreign policy in the post-9/11 era. Her second book will be about her parents, who were both educators, and her childhood growing up in the Jim Crow South. The third book will be a version of the second book with children as its target audience.
