Chris Mullin's bestselling "A View From the Foothills" provided a riveting insider's account of life as a junior minister. Laying bare the personalities, pyrotechnics and political intrigues of the Blair years, it was described as 'Yes Minister meets Alan Clark'. Funny and self-deprecating, the new diaries run from his sacking by Blair as a minister after the 2005 elections to Election Day 2010 as he prepares to step down after 23 years as an MP wryly observing, 'they say failed politicians make the best diarists, in which case I am in with a chance'.

Chris Mullin was elected labour MP for Sunderland South in 1987. He chaired the Home Affairs select Committee and was a minister in three departments. He is the bestselling author of A View From the Foothills (Profile) and the novel A Very British Coup (Serpent's Tail) which was turned into an award-winning television series.Review:
Every once in a while, political diaries emerge that are so irreverent and insightful that they are destined to be handed out as leaving presents in offices across Whitehall for years to come. A View from the Foothills is one such book -- David Cameron At a time when we are awash with memoirs of political grandees, the worms-eye view is even more valuable * New Statesman *
