"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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

WASHINGTON -- In a good-will gesture toward China, the Clinton administration has agreed to sell it a sophisticated $8 million supercomputer, senior administration officials said yesterday.The decision is part of the administration's strategy to embrace, rather than isolate, China despite disagreements over human rights, weapons proliferation and trade. The Clinton administration is determined to grab an ever-larger share of China's market, the fastest growing in the world, and reduce a trade deficit that could exceed that with Japan by the end of the decade.
