This is not a panegyric, but it is a welcome reassessment of a deeply flawed leader who, when the moment came, rose magnificently to the occasion.
-Guardian

Synopsis

In this new book, Wiliam Keegan of The Observer builds on his earlier best-selling examination of the political career of Gordon Brown, 'The Prudence of Mr Gordon Brown' (2003). A book that expressed some unfashionable concerns about the conduct of New Labour's economic policy and seeked to temper the copious praise that was then being lavished on Brown.

"Saving the World"? takes a fresh look at the later years of Gordon Brown as chancellor and prime minister.The book, no hagiography, draws equally on the accounts of those who worked closest with him as well as those who he fought and feuded with and provides a balanced view of Brown the leader, arguing that, for all his acknowledged flaws, and policy errors, the degree to which 'it was all Gordon's fault' is much exaggerated.

It's time for a reassessment.
