Big Little Life of Jeane Kirkpatrick

Jeane Kirkpatrick the iconic US Ambassador to the United Nations during the Reagan Administration, and the one some say took the “Kick me” sign off the backs of the US Delegation to the  UN,  is the subject of a new biography by local Author and Publisher Peter Collier.    A staunch anti-communist  considered  a key player in winning the Cold War, Kirkpatrick was a rare woman and  Democrat serving in the Republican Regan Administration in the 1980’s.
