Former National Security Council senior director Fiona Hill, who testified as part of the House impeachment hearings, will release a book next fall, her publisher announced.
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books & Media, a New York-based publishing firm, announced Wednesday that it has acquired Hill’s already-written book, titled, “There Is Nothing for You Here: Opportunity in an Age of Decline,” and plans to release it in late 2021.
Hill, who handled European and Russian affairs on the National Security Council, will cover her life and the future of a polarized America.
“The book will draw on Dr. Hill’s deep expertise in the United States and Europe, as well as her personal experience on both continents, to explain how our current, polarized moment is the result of long historical trends — from imperial overreach to postindustrial decline — that have long afflicted Russia and the United Kingdom, and which now are beginning to affect the United States,” the publisher said in a statement.
“Hill will describe the origins and growth of deep, geographically concentrated opportunity gaps, and show how they have fueled the rise of populism at home and abroad,” it continued.
The publishing house acquired the North American rights to the book from Andrew Nurnberg Associates, a London-based firm.
In a statement, Hill said, “[M]y personal and professional lives have led me from the United Kingdom to Russia and finally to the United States, where I have found great opportunity but also many of the same challenges. I am writing this book to share my story, but also to share the lessons I’ve learned about how we can revitalize our country’s forgotten places.”
In October, Hill testified as part of the House of Representatives’ impeachment probe into President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, specifically relating to an alleged pressure campaign to get the country to open investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
In her testimony, she claimed that former National Security Adviser John Bolton became incensed during his final months in the Trump administration after learning of the alleged campaign.
