Hillary Clinton's new memoir will include Osama bin Laden, Qaddafi – but not 2016

In her as-yet untitled memoir to be published in the summer of 2014, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will write about the attack on Osama bin Laden, Arab Spring, and relations with China, says publisher Simon & Schuster.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has gotten a release date for her planned memoir, and a new press release shed a little more light on what she’ll discuss in the book.

Her book will come out in 2014 and will be released by publisher Simon & Schuster.

Clinton had previously announced that she would be writing a new book about her time as secretary of state, but a press release from Simon & Schuster elaborated that the as-yet-untitled book would address the attack against Osama bin Laden and the end of Muammar Qaddafi’s regime in Libya as well as the Arab Spring in general and relations with China.

Simon & Schuster published Clinton’s previous titles as well, which include the 1996 book “It Takes A Village” and 2003’s “Living History.”

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

Karp is also serving as the book’s editor.

An anonymous source told the Washington Post that Clinton’s new book will not discuss the 2008 election or any presidential runs in the future.
