Votre note
After spending several years in the thick of international events, Chris Patten has seen rather a lot of the world - and the people who run it. And now he's free from the bonds of diplomacy, he doesn't have to be quite so careful about what he says. Here he gives us his forthright views on everything from the Tories' downfall to America's empire, from whether Blair has any political convictions to why Britain should start liking the French. Part memoir, part remedy for the stare we're in, with liberal sprinklings of common sense, this is a frank and funny book from a very outspoken diplomat.

Chris Patten is one of Britain's most respected political figures. After reading Modern History at Balliol College, Oxford, he began his career in politics when he joined the Conservative Research Department in 1966.

After ministerial posts at the departments of Education, Environment and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, he was appointed Chairman of the Conservative Party in 1990.

In September 1999 he was appointed European Commissioner for External Relations, and on leaving office in Brussels in 2004 was made a life peer. Lord Patten is Chancellor of Newcastle and Oxford universities and now spends much of his time campaigning for increased funding for higher education.
