Details: This is the autobiography of Jack Straw
- an MP for thirty-three years & at the heart of government throughout the longest-serving Labour administration in history. As a small boy in Epping Forest, Jack Straw could never have imagined that one day he would become Britain's Lord Chancellor. As one of five children of divorced parents, he was bright enough to get a scholarship to a direct-grant school, but spent his holidays as a plumbers' mate for his uncles to bring in some much-needed extra income. Yet he spent 13 years & 11 days in government, including long & influential spells as Home Secretary & Foreign Secretary. This is the story of how he got there. His memoirs offer a unique insight into the complex, sometimes self-serving but always fascinating world of British politics & reveals the toll that high office takes, but, more importantly, the enormous satisfaction & extraordinary privilege of serving both your constituents & your country. Straw's has been a very public life, but he reveals the private face, too & offers readers a vivid & authoritative insight into the Blair/ Brown era &, indeed, the last forty years of British politics. Ideal for: Those who have followed Jack Straw's career & people with interest in politicians. This paperback book has 582 pages & measures: 23.3 x 15.2 x 4.5cm
