Alan Beith has been an MP for England's northernmost constituency for 35 years and is a leading figure in the Liberal Democrats. His book covers key stages in his party's growth, including the 1970s Lib-Lab pact and Paddy Ashdown's leadership, and also what the philosophy of Liberalism is all about. He writes about his work overseeing Britain's intelligence and security services over more than a decade, and how faith has helped him through dark times with the deaths of his first wife, Barbara, and his son, Chris.

Review:

"All in All, this is a biography worth reading for its humanity and for its occasional political aperçus." --Journal of Liberal History.

"He writes engagingly and often movingly of his life and his faith." --The House Magazine.

"This book, like its author, is reassuring and reflective, quiet should never be confused with dull . Refreshingly Alan Beith comes over as a man of principle based on his long-held beliefs in goodness, justice and faith." --David Stuckey, The Baptist Times.

Book Description McNidder & Grace, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. New ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. Today's MPs are often thought to be trapped in a London-centred view of life and to lack any "hinterland" of life beyond politics, and any fundamental beliefs, but this book looks at political life from a northern perspective. Starting in the Manchester area and following the author's 35 years as MP for England's northernmost constituency and a leading figure in the Liberal Democrats, the book cover key stages in the party's growth, including the 1970s Lib-Lab pact and Paddy Ashdown's leadership, as well as what the philosophy of Liberalism is all about. His experiences overseeing Britain's intelligence and security services over more than a decade are presented and the need to make parliament more effective is outlined.
