Synopsis: Aimed at the general reader and covering a broad range of topics, from Britishness and fairness, through the economy and public services, to child poverty and environmental issues, this book is essential reading for anyone who wants to discover what motivates Gordon Brown, and what his vision is for a modern, forward-looking Britain. Though varying in tone and style, the Chancellor's speeches stand as an integrated whole—as those of very few politicians do—because they reflect long thought and a coherent view of Britain, of our responsibilities to one another as citizens, and of Britain's role in the world. Prefaced by short introductions by leading figures including Kofi Annan, Helen Clark, Linda Colley, Ralph Dahrendorf, Al Gore, Alan Greenspan, Nelson Mandela, Wangaari Maathai, Trevor Phillips, J. K. Rowling, Jonathan Sacks, Derek Wanless, and Sir Magdi Yacoub, they reflect a formidable and widely read intellect, trained in the analytic skills of the historian but also—and far more importantly—inspired by a vision of what the political process can achieve for our society and our nation.

About the Author: Gordon Brown was born (1951) and educated in Kirkcaldy. He studied at Edinburgh University from the age of 16 and graduated with Master of Arts at 19 with 1st Class Honours, later gaining a Doctorate of Philosophy. He was elected Rector of Edinburgh University by the student body and from 1972 to 1975 was Chairman of the University Court. From 1976 to 1980, he lectured at Edinburgh University and then Glasgow College of Technology, before taking up a post at Scottish TV. From 1983-1984 he was Chair of the Labour Party Scottish Council and in May 1983 became MP for Dunfermline East. He was Opposition spokesperson on Treasury and Economic Affairs (Shadow Chancellor) from 1992. With the election of the Labour government in May 1997, Gordon Brown became Chancellor of the Exchequer and is now the longest serving Chancellor for 200 years. He is currently Chairman of the International Monetary and Finance Committee which monitors the International Monetary Fund and is a member of Kofi Annan's Panel for the Reform of the United Nations. Gordon Brown is married to Sarah Macaulay and they have one son. Wilf Stevenson, a former Director of the BFI, is the Director of the Smith Institute, an independent Think Tank set up to undertake research and education in issues that flow from the changing relationship between social values and economic imperatives.
