"Chances of a Lifetime," by Warren Christopher. Scribner. 320 pages. $26. In a thoughtful, official autobiography, Warren Christopher, President Clinton's first-term secretary of state, details key incidents in his career. Born in a small town in North Dakota in 1925, the son of the local banker, Christopher never loses his sense of wonder that he has been allowed to participate in historical events and work with the famous and powerful. Ability, luck and a growing network of contacts push Christopher forward.

London.--It was President Woodrow Wilson who, at the end of the First World War, threw that great secessionist fragmentation bomb, the principle of the self-determination of nations, into the arena of public debate. ''Every people should be left free to determine its own polity,'' he told the American Congress.Nearly eight decades later we have a new American secretary of state, Warren Christopher, worrying, ''If we don't find some way that different ethnic groups can live together in a country, how many countries will we have?

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The recount of Florida's election ballots that will decide the winner of the American presidency began yesterday amid challenges, questions and scrutiny by Democratic and Republican monitors. Election officials in Florida's 67 counties were expected to finish the first phase of the ballot count by 5 p.m. today, a tally that should determine whether Texas Gov. George Bush or Vice President Al Gore wins the Sunshine State's 25 electoral votes and captures the White House.

YOU can make a case that war in the Balkans poses no threat to America's vital strategic interests; Bosnia produces nothing we cannot do without, and Serbia is not about to develop a nuclear bomb or otherwise menace the rest of Europe.You can also justify nonintervention by deriding the domino theory: If murder-by-ethnicity spreads, the Turks and Greeks may or may not be drawn in, and nowhere is it written that the Hungarians, Romanians and Bulgarians are certain to then plunge in to rearrange boundaries, leading to a rerun of World War I.And you can rationalize turning away from the carnage on the grounds of sphere of influence: It's Europe's headache, and if we become the policeman in this case then we might undermine regional self-reliance around the world.

BRIDGEHAMPTON, N.Y. -- In case you haven't noticed, this is a great time to buy wooden furniture. At Caldor's, the big discount store here 100 miles east of New York, you can get good-looking, heavy wood kitchen or dining-room chairs for $39 and $49 and tables for $99 to $199.The design is ''Old American,'' in the manner of the rickety but beautiful 100- and 200-year-old Windsor chairs and farm tables. I just bought a bunch of the stuff, wondering exactly how they can sell it for these prices.

WASHINGTON -- George Bush, who entered public life as a supporter of the U.S. war against the Vietnamese Communists, is joining in the rush to build ties and do business with the former enemy.The former president is being paid a six-figure fee by Citibank, the giant New York-based international bank, to give speeches and meet with the bank's multinational and local commercial customers in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City in early September, according to a person familiar with the arrangements."A prime purpose for us is for him to meet with customers of ours, both local and multinational," said Kenneth Campbell, a spokesman for Citibank, which sees Vietnam as an important emerging market.

Withdrawing Serbs destroyed the town's water treatment plant last weekend.The Security Council unanimously approved another 6,550 troops for Bosnia after delaying action several weeks ago HTC because Washington balked at the additional costs. Some 33,300 troops already are in the former Yugoslavia, including 17,000 in Bosnia.Secretary of State Warren Christopher said he may meet next week with Western and Russian foreign ministers to push for a negotiated settlement of the war. He said a decision depended on how much headway mediators make this week in talks with leaders of the government and Bosnian Serbs.
