About this title
In this remarkably gripping memoir, one of the most dynamic and controversial leaders of modern times gives us a firsthand account of his years in office and beyond.
Here, for the first time, Tony Blair recounts his role in shaping our recent history, from the aftermath of Princess Diana's death to the war on terror. With rare honesty and courage, he recounts the belief in ethical intervention that led to his decision to go to war in Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, and, most controversial of all, Iraq.
Filled with fascinating revelations about Blair's close friendship with the Clinton family, his admiration for George W. Bush, and his relationship with Barack Obama, A Journey is a must-read political memoir, providing an unprecedented glimpse into Tony Blair's experiences as Prime Minister, through his own eyes.
In his expansive new introduction, Tony Blair discusses his vision of a future based on open-mindedness, yet fully couched in the complex realities of our times.
TONY BLAIR was elected prime minister in 1997. Since leaving office in 2007, he has served as the Quartet Representative to the Middle East and founded the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, which promotes respect and understanding between the major religions and makes the case for faith as a force for good in the modern world. He now leads the Breaking the Climate Deadlock initiative, working with world leaders to build consensus on a new comprehensive international climate policy framework. He lectures at Yale University.
