Book Description

The five volumes of journalist and political analyst Alastair Campbell’s diaries were a publishing sensation. As British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s right-hand man, Campbell played a critical role in every aspect of New Labour strategy. Charting the course of British government from July 1994 to august 2003, Campbell’s relentlessly honest, often controversial, occasionally brutal and always razor-sharp commentary has drawn critical acclaim around the world. This one-volume edition focuses on Ireland and the Northern Irish peace process. From the high of the Good Friday agreement and devolution in Northern Ireland to the deadly lows of the Manchester and Omagh bombings, The Irish Diaries explores the tensions, all-night talks, adrenalin-fuelled negotiations and heady personality clashes that are such an intrinsic part of democratic politics. Newly annotated and fully revised by the author with fresh linking commentary, featuring commissioned material by key figures in the Irish peace process, former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, Tony Blair and Alastair Campbell himself, The Irish Diaries provides an invaluable historical record for future generations, both in Ireland and beyond.

The contributing chapters by Bertie Ahern and Tony Blair on the Irish Peace process was very insightful.

Although it was nice to re read the diaries by Alistair Campbell covering the Irish peace process to remind me of that time, but if like me you have read all diary volumes then really there is nothing new in them.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Irish Diaries 3 Nov. 2013
Although i'm unable obviously to read the book yet,where's Mo Mowlam? No photo of her on the front cover,probably the single-most important person in this episode,conveniently airbrushed methinks! I wouldn't touch anything of Alistair Campbell's doing.The Irish Diaries (1994-2003): Alastair Campbell
