Review

d'Ancona has taken the inchoate subject of the coalition and kneaded it into shape...his ultimate strength is his authorial skill...a lively phrasemaker (Financial Times)

Fascinating insights...juicy gossip...d'Ancona is one of the shrewdest, most engaging observers of the Cameron phenomenon (The Guardian)

Engaging...d'Ancona, one of the most intelligent and perceptive centre-right commentators, brilliantly charts the long years in which the two parties have clung together through thick and thin -- the rows, the rifts, the crises...He is good on the politics as well as the personalities (The Times)

An absorbing book (Evening Standard)

The first comprehensive account of the coalition's formation...d'Ancona demonstrates why he is one of the most well-connected and astute observers of modern politics...Cameron's party will want to study closely this invaluable guide (Daily Telegraph)

An intriguing read...This is a book about high politics rather than grand political debate...This book is very much an inside account of the past three years (Mail on Sunday)

From the Inside Flap

A shockingly intimate, behind-the-scenes account of one of the most tumultuous alliances in British political history.

On the morning of May 7, 2010, for the first time in over thirty years, Britain woke up to find it had elected a hung Parliament. The response masterminded by David Cameron and Nick Clegg was the Liberal-Conservative coalition: one of the most radical, dramatic and bruising experiments in power the country has ever seen.

Based on a cocktail of good intentions and desperate necessity, this combustible partnership of two parties - previously sworn enemies - defied those who said it would collapse in weeks . But at what cost? Drawing on hundreds of hours of frank interviews with the key players and unprecedented access, this insider account tells the real story in unsparing close-up: from Nick Clegg's plummet from grace over tuition fees, to the political disaster of Andrew Lansley's proposals for NHS reform; from David Cameron's mortifying text relationship with Rebekah Brooks, to the imprisonment of Chris Huhne and Vicky Pryce over a speeding fine; from military intervention in Libya to the legalisation of gay marriage; from Boris's plan to "drive a tank" into Number Ten to the bizarre scandal of Pleb-gate.

Throughout, we are taken inside the minds of the major personalities - what David Cameron, George Osborne and Nick Clegg; Cameron's "access-all-areas" Senior Adviser, Steve Hilton, 'the Dave whisperer'; Education Secretary, Michael Gove, 'a cross between Jeeves and Che Guevara'; Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell, 'the Thrasher' - witnessing the close knit ties of the Notting Hill Set, the friendships forged over late-night DVD sessions and take-away pizza, and the bitter clashes that have threatened to wreck the coalition altogether. We see the rows, the hissy fits and the foul-mouthed fury behind the smiles for camera,

The result is a gripping read, packed with insightful analysis and exclusive revelations, from one of our foremost political journalists.
