Publisher's Summary

Tony Blair was seen as a fresh face for the Labour Party. A party moderniser, he created 'New Labour' and appealed more to the central political ground. During his 10 years in office, he created the London mayoralty, negotiated the Good Friday Agreement in Northern Ireland and went to war in Iraq. Some say he is one of the most significant prime ministers of the 20th century; others say he will always be judged by his decision to take the country to war.

The Life and Times of Tony Blair looks back on a significant career of one of Labour's most memorable modern-day leaders, with insights from political contemporaries David Blunkett, Tessa Jowell, Michael Howard, and Ken Livingstone.

    "Great insight, interesting listen"

    This is a fascinating insight into Tony Blair’s rise to power (the untimely death of John Smith, former leader of the Labour party and the deal he made with Gordon Brown) but also, a record of some of the extraordinary events that occurred during his term as PM including 9/11, the rise of terrorism and the Second Gulf War, the Death of Princess Diana and the Northern Island peace process.
