Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former US secretary of state and a Democratic presidential candidate in 2008, will publish a second memoir next year, publishing company Simon & Schuster announced Thursday.

The book will chronicle Clinton's "key decisions and experiences as secretary of state and her ideas for how the United States can address the challenges of a dramatically changing world in the 21st century," the company said.

Clinton entered the national political scene in the early 1990s along with her husband, former president Bill Clinton. She later served as a senator from the state of New York and was the top US diplomat from January 2009 to February 2013 under President Barack Obama.

Clinton has become one of the most popular political figures in the country, leading to speculation that she could make another bid for the White House in 2016.

"Living History," her 2003 memoir, was about her upbringing and time serving as First Lady.
