This is another paragraph

From Publishers Weekly: Cook made headlines last spring as one of those who resigned from Tony Blair's cabinet in protest over the coming Iraq war. There's a lot in this diary of the past two years about his growing feelings against the war, his objections largely based on belief that Saddam didn't have any unconventional weapons and that the links between Saddam and Osama bin Laden were tenuous at best. As Cook puts it, the need for war because Saddam had unconventional weapons might have carried more credibility if both the US and then the British governments had not been together in it up to their armpits in creating that capacity in the first place. Cook also repeats what are now familiar arguments: specifically, that the policy of containment was working, and that nonmilitary intervention would have been more effective. He's generally respectful and polite toward Blair describing him as the most successful Labor leader in recent years but he calls supporting the war the wrong choice for Britain. His are familiar arguments, but Cook expresses them well and offers a dash of much-needed humanism in a polarized world. He also offers a pragmatist's vision for the future intended as a prescription for non-Blair leftists. Unfortunately, he does not follow through enough on the title's promise-the book fails to stick to the point. Cook spends too much time discussing British parliamentary reform, a topic unlikely to find much resonance among American readers. But those interested in what a principled British politician who opposed the war in Iraq has to say about that war will want to take a look.

Product Description: In the late 1980s, when she began keeping a diary, Edwina Currie was the second most prominent woman in British politics - after Margaret Thatcher. Indeed, she was often spoken of as a potential prime minister. Her outspokenness and her lively, media-friendly personality won her a much higher profile than her status as a junior minister would otherwise have commanded. When she was forced to resign from the Government after warning of the danger signs of salmonella infection in eggs, she was already a national figure. The appearance of these diaries is a significant publishing event. Like Alan Clark's diaries, they provide an insight into politics at the top, by a writer with an observant eye and a sharp sense of humour.

Synopsis: This personal account covers the health of the British people between 1986 and 1988, politics, insights into the workings of the Whitehall machine and a look at the minds of mandarins and their ministers. Edwina Currie also reveals her thoughts on her period in office, during the challenges and crises on subjects from AIDS to breast cancer, from welfare to woolly hats, aiming to show what it was like to be a minister in the Thatcher government and how policy is really made. It will be of interest to anyone concerned about health - their own, that of their friends and family, and that of the nation - and to those who are intrigued by the phenomenon of Edwina Currie herself.
