Summary
  • "Half-Life of a Zealot tells how the girl who spoke against "Reds" alongside her father became a fierce advocate for progressive change in America and abroad, an innovative philanthropist, and Bill Clinton's ambassador to Austria. In captivating prose, Hunt describes the warmth and wear of Southern Baptist culture, which instilled in her a calling to help the least fortunate and most vulnerable. The reader is drawn into her full-throttle professional life as it competes with critical family needs."
  • "Hunt gives a remarkable frank account of her triumphs and shortcomings; her sorrows, including a miscarriage and the failure of a marriage; the joys and struggles of her second marriage; and her angst over the desperate illness of one of her three children. She is candid about the opportunities her fortune has created, as well as the challenge of life as an heiress."
  • "Much of Swanee Hunt's professional work is geared toward promoting inclusion, particularly by expanding women's roles in shaping public policy and encouraging the participation of all stakeholders in peace processes across the globe. The foundation that Hunt established in 1981 has contributed more than fifty million dollars to cultivate progressive social change at local, national, and international levels."--Jacket
