The number one bestselling memoir of one of New Labour’s three founding architects, now with a revealing new chapter updating this e-book edition.
Peter Mandelson is one of the most influential politicians of modern times. ‘The Third Man’ is his story – of a life played out in the backroom and then on the frontline of the Labour Party during its unprecedented three terms in government.
Much of the book is devoted to the defining political relationships of Peter Mandelson’s life – with Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. Charting what he terms the ‘soap-opera’ years of the Labour government, his book continues to ruffle feathers with an updated preface bringing the story up to the tempestuous present.
A great read and surprisingly well written
This is a great way to find out the real story of how the Labour party was taken from the 1980s doldrums of unelectability to a three term winning machine. Don't listen to the miserable grumblings for those with an axe to grind. Mandelson might be the ultimate Marmite politician but for sure he will help you understand the Labour party today and the complex set of relationships that dictated the 13 years of politics in the UK.
Rip off and nothing u don't already know
Brown hates Blair, I already know that tell us some thing new. Utter rubbish!
Pretty dull stuff from Mandy but the in-fighting is amusing!
Fairly dull but amusingly predictable.
