In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. This real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville's Moby-Dick but that told only part of the story. In the Heart of the Sea reveals the harrowing aftermath as the ship's surviving crew is forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.

Is there a link between “smart power” and Hillary Clinton’s leadership style? Can she advance American leadership and women’s development worldwide? The Global Hillary: Women's Political Leadership in Cultural Contexts, edited by Dinesh Sharma, addresses these questions and many others.

Bringing together two key aspects of Clinton’s ongoing career--her advocacy for international women’s rights and the mission to foster democratic development around the world--The Global Hillary critically analyzes Clinton’s role as a transformative leader of global influence. Essays in this collection provide insight into Clinton’s leadership style, particularly her use of American “smart power” in foreign policy, while examining her impact on the continuing worldwide struggle for women’s rights. Using international perspectives on the historical and cultural contexts of Clinton’s leadership, this book also looks toward the future of women’s political leadership in the 21st century with special attention to the prospect of electing a woman to the United States presidency.

Dinesh Sharma is an Associate Research Professor at the Institute for Global Cultural Studies, SUNY Binghamton. His current teaching work is focused on human rights, globalization, leadership, and the UN. In addition, Sharma teaches about global leadership and the UN at Fordham University at Lincoln Center, and has authored and edited several books, including The Global Obama and Barack Obama in Hawai’i and Indonesia.

"A rare collection of insights into Hillary Clinton’s leadership style, The Global Hillary examines one of the most influential women of our time and her historic role as a champion for women’s rights and gender equality worldwide."  --Alyse Nelson, President & CEO, Vital Voices Global Partnership

"After publishing a couple of very timely, seminal books about President Obama, Professor Sharma again proves to have his finger on the political pulse with this insightful collection of revealing essays about Secretary Clinton, arriving just as she stands poised to make history of her own."  --Kam Williams, Baret News Syndicate

"This book is exactly what every voter needs to make an informed and intelligent decision in the 2016 Presidential election."  --Robert A. LeVine, PhD, Roy E. Larsen Professor of Education and Human Development, Emeritus, Harvard University

"A sober, insightful look at what makes Hillary Clinton truly global."  --Kim Ghattas, author of NYT best seller The Secretary: A Journey with Hillary Clinton from Beirut to the Heart of American Power

"A must-read book that examines Hillary Clinton's impact on women's rights and human rights globally from her landmark Beijing speech 20 years ago to the potential impact as the first woman president of the most powerful democracy in the world."  --Subha V. Barry, General Manager and Vice President, Working Mother Media
