Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will write a new book with Simon & Schuster, chronicling her time as Secretary of State and imparting her ideas on how the U.S. can face tough challenges ahead. The book will be released in 2014.

“Hillary Clinton’s extraordinary public service has given her a unique perspective on recent history and the challenges we face,” said Simon & Schuster president Jonathan Karp in a statement. “This will be the ultimate book for people who are interested in world affairs and America’s place in the world today.”

In the as-yet-untitled book, Clinton will recount her role in and reflect on key, recent events, such as the killing of Osama Bin Laden; the Arab Spring; North Korea; the overthrow of the Qaddafi regime in Libya; the transitions in Afghanistan and Iraq; the rise of new powers like China, Brazil, Turkey, and India; and a host of other global issues, like climate change, economics, technology, and women’s rights.

Clinton will also share personal anecdotes of her extensive work with world leaders, including with President Obama and the National Security team.
