"John Major's autobiography is one of the most personal and revealing ever written by a former British Prime Minister." "Major's early life was extraordinary; his rise through Parliament meteoric. Soon a favourite of Margaret Thatcher, he became Foreign Secretary and then Chancellor of the Exchequer. When Thatcher fell, he fought and won a shrewd campaign to succeed her." "With the difficulties of the Gulf War and the Maastricht Treaty behind him, and the Poll Tax abolished, John Major went on to win a victory in the general election of 1992. He brought down inflation and ushered in a solid economic recovery. He made the most decisive steps for a generation towards peace in Northern Ireland. Yet within months of the 1992 election his government was in troubled waters. John Major is candid about his fight to keep sterling in the Exchange Rate Mechanism and for the first time makes public his reactions to defeat on 'Black Wednesday'. He is frank about the civil war that emerged within his own party over Britain's relationship with the European Union. He is honest about what he won and what he lost, and about friends and foes within his party as well as outside."--BOOK JACKET
