    DescriptionAndrew Rawnsley's bestselling "The End of the Party" lifts the lid on the second half of New Labour's spell in office. Through riveting inside accounts of all the key events from 9/11 and the Iraq War to the financial crisis and the parliamentary expenses scandal, Rawnsley takes us through the triumphs and tribulations of New Labour. With entertaining portraits of the main playershe exposes the astonishing feuds and reconciliations between Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and Peter Mandelson. "Rawnsley has talked to everyone who has counted over the past ten years...A brilliant account...a sheer delight for the political connoisseur. Almost every page provides a fresh insight or piece of information not previously in the public domain". (Peter Oborne, "Daily Mail"). "The book's authority rests on an impressive breadth of research...This lively Shakespearian account ...the most thorough, the most enjoyable and the most original book yet written about New Labour". (David Hare, "The Guardian"). Andrew Rawnsley is associate editor and chief political commentator for the "Observer".
