The Education of an Idealist traces Pulitzer Prize winner Samantha Power's distinctly American journey from immigrant to war correspondent to presidential Cabinet official.

In 2005, Power's critiques of US foreign policy caught the eye of newly elected Senator Barack Obama, who invited her to work with him on Capitol Hill and then on his presidential campaign. After Obama was elected president, Power went from being an activist outsider to a government insider, serving for four years as Obama's human rights adviser and then as the youngest-ever US Ambassador to the United Nations.

Transporting us from her childhood in Dublin to the streets of war-torn Bosnia and out into the world of high-stakes diplomacy, Power's memoir is an unforgettable account of the world-changing power of idealism, and of one person's fierce determination to make a difference.
