Although he is no longer in power or in parliament, Tony Benn remains a figure of enormous respect whose direct views, honestly expressed, have often awakened the national conscience. His latest diaries, human and challenging in turn, are enthralling.
"Now in his eighties, Benn calls these seven years since he left Parliament 'a blaze of autumn sunshine.' Driven by his passion for debate and justice, he continues to travel the country promoting his strongly held and compassionate views. His honest interview with Saddam in Bagdhad; his searing analysis of the Iraq debacle (Blair's comment on paying the blood price was 'tribal'); his many friendships (including with Bill Clinton who, he muses, is young enough to be his son); he tells all with a warm spontaneity that makes the listener feel like a special guest."

An incredible social document from an impassioned socialist
Tony Benn takes his time beyond the House of Commons to campaign for peace, engage the public, and to rediscover the big themes and challenges of our age. He is at all times human, witty and focussed on justice. It is also the first time his family and friendships are discussed in detail, which is heartwarming. We also learn of his love of Pizza.
