Blair Unbound

Front Cover
Simon & Schuster, 2007 - Great Britain - 669 pages
In June 2007, with his approval rating at an all-time low, Tony Blair stood down as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom after more than a decade in office. In this riveting account, Anthony Seldon--a recognized expert of British politics--follows the career of Tony Blair starting from its pinnacle at September 11 right up to his handing of the reins over to his arch rival, Gordon Brown. The politics of the post-9/11 Blair government, its policies in Iraq and Afghanistan, its domestic actions, and the true nature of Blair-Brown power struggle are all addressed. Based on hundreds of interviews with key government insiders and individuals close to the Blair camp--many of whom have previously kept their views private--this is the most complete, authoritative, and compelling account yet of the Blair premiership. Blair Unbound serves both as a fascinating "volume two" of this master class in political biography and as a highly revealing and compelling book in its own right.
