Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has written a new book in which she argues that America "must continue to support the cause of human freedom."

In "Democracy: Stories from the Long Road to Freedom," Rice, who served under President George W. Bush, takes a "sweeping look at the global struggle for democracy," according to publisher Twelve Books.

"From the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union to the ongoing struggle for human rights in the Middle East, Condoleezza Rice has served on the front lines of history," the publisher says.

"As a child, she was an eyewitness to a third awakening of freedom, when her hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, became the epicenter of the civil rights movement for black Americans."

In "Democracy," Rice, a professor in Global Business and the Economy at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, puts "democracy's challenges into perspective," according to Twelve.

"Using America's long struggle as a template, Rice draws lessons for democracy around the world — from Russia, Poland, and Ukraine, to Kenya, Colombia, and the Middle East.

"She finds that no transitions to democracy are the same because every country starts in a different place. Pathways diverge and sometimes circle backward. Time frames for success vary dramatically, and countries often suffer false starts before getting it right."
