Product description


"There are plenty of nuggets here that are fascinating, some passages that make you wince and others that are gripping. It has historical value." (Observer)

"Campbell is a compelling diarist . . . [with] vivid set pieces . . . The Campbell Diaries provide the fullest insider account so far of new Labour's ascent to power." (The Times)

"Campbell's world is the brutal, angry, hard-driven, joky, football-crazed and intensely male world of tabloid journalism. He is a fluent and industrious reporter, with amazing stamina: it is quite a feat, at the end of days dealing with the press on Blair's behalf that he managed to get this account down." (Telegraph)

"Hugely gripping . . . all of human life is here. It makes The Thick of It look tame. And sane." (Sunday Times)

"The abundance of extra detail throws up some richly comic moments . . . Campbell's writing has much of the brutal honestly of [Alan] Clark's." (Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description

The Blair Years was a taster. Prelude to Power reveals the diairies uncut. And it is just the beginning.
