The insider's story of the biggest controversies to rock the 1980s and early 1990s, this work, by the editor of the "Sunday Times" throughout the 1980s, covers the main political events of this period. The book reveals information about events as varied as the miners' strike and the Thatcher leadership contest, what lay behind the headline "Queen dismayed by uncaring Thatcher", and why, despite being a supporter of much of the Thatcher revolution, the author and the "Sunday Times" were persona non grata at Downing Street. The author also reflects on his life as a bachelor, including comment on both his relationship with Pamella Bordes and his working partnership with Rupert Murdoch.
