Summary
"Anthony Seldon's first study of Tony Blair, published in 2004, which took his story from birth up to the second term, has now become the conventional wisdom about Blair: a figure whose rise was shaped heavily by powerful individuals and events, and who squandered his early years in office because he had yet to work out what he wanted to do with power, and to stand fully on his own feet." "Blair Unbound, written with Peter Snowdon and Daniel Ceilings, takes the story from 2001 until his final day in power on 27 June 2007. It recounts how Blair matures as a political leader, finds his voice and personal agenda at home and abroad, and divests himself of the figures who had helped him rise to power but then held him back. Critical in this transformation is 9/11, which put iron in his soul, and fired him with the vision of becoming a world leader." "Blair Unbound is the best-sourced book to be written on a recently departed British Prime Minister. It is based on 2 million transcribed words of interviews with figures at the heart of the courts of Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and George W. Bush, and on a wide array of unpublished documents, It is scrupulously fair to all sides in the battles at the heart of government, whose ferocity was unlike anything seen before in British political history."--BOOK JACKET
