Book Overview

As a memoir this is hard to put down; if you are seeking a better American future you should pick it up.--Timothy Snyder, New York Times best-selling author of On Tyranny

A celebrated foreign policy expert and key impeachment witness reveals how declining opportunity has set America on the grim path of modern Russia--and draws on her personal journey out of poverty, as well as her unique perspectives as an historian and policy maker, to show how we can return hope to our forgotten places.

Fiona Hill grew up in a world of terminal decay. The last of the local mines had closed, businesses were shuttering, and despair was etched in the faces around her. Her father urged her to get out of their blighted corner of northern England: There is nothing for you here, pet, he said.

The coal-miner's daughter managed to go further than he ever could have dreamed. She studied in Moscow and at Harvard, became an American citizen, and served three U.S. Presidents. But in the heartlands of both Russia and the United States, she saw troubling reflections of her hometown and similar populist impulses. By the time she offered her brave testimony in the first impeachment inquiry of President Trump, Hill knew that the desperation of forgotten people was driving American politics over the brink--and that we were running out of time to save ourselves from Russia's fate. In this powerful, deeply personal account, she shares what she has learned, and shows why expanding opportunity is the only long-term hope for our democracy.

   Brilliant
Hill is out loud at times, but she offers valuable perspectives both personal and global, for everyone interested in history, government, governing, women's studies, or democracy or what each of us can do to bridge our divides and build forward together. Absolutely brilliant.

   Over coming adversity
A wonderful story about a woman who overcame the odds against her, earned a world class education and served in the government.

   Fiona Hill illuminates historical events and it is fascinating!
I liked the book and the author explained how the divisiveness in the United States and the United Kingdom are related to historical events.

   The Most Unexpected Book of the Year - Not about Trump - Very Interesting
The book is one of the best I have read in a long time. From the North of England to the USA.

   An Every Persons Journey
This is a book, journal, chronicle, personal diary and testimony to what anyone can accomplish with the right mind, heart, and soul. The beginning and end of the book make it a book. It's a journal because it's a personal journey that is not very different from all who have overcome societies because of circumstances far beyond any individual control but met with determination, surety of self and just plain perseverance. It is a chronicle of our time in the 20th and 21st century. It is a diary and testimony for all of us that would work towards a common good. It is a one-of-a-kind revelation for all, to run, don't walk, and buy this book.
