About the Author

"The Daily Telegraph"
The most damning account yet of the origins of the British decision to attack Iraq...Those seriously interested in issues of peace and war should read this book.
"The Independent on Sunday"
As clear and eloquent as its author...it contains a sharp critique of New Labour and Blairism and above all of the road to war in Iraq...A well-thought-through and comprehensive criticism of New Labour and of Tony Blair.
Interesting and extraordinarily well written...the stories he has to tell of the build-up to the Iraq war, reform of the House of Lords, and modernisation of the House of Commons are valuable history...It is also refreshingly peppered with Robin's humour...He gives a crucial ringside seat with all the authority of the ex-foreign secretary...a riveting account.
