Product description


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

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

"Campbell's world is the brutal, angry, hard-driven, jokey, football-crazed and intensely male world of tabloid journalism. He is a fluent and industrious reporter, with amazing stamina" (The Telegraph)

"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 fluent and industrious reporter, with amazing stamina" (Daily Telegraph)

Book Description

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