A Tragedy in Three Parts
By Andy Ross
Paperback, 12.8 cm x 19.6 cm, 160 pages
This is the tragic story of Jon Ball, who
became a Conservative prime minister in the UK only to blow it
with the result that Britain became a socialist
republic within the European Union.
The story is told in three
parts, narrated respectively by Jon himself, by his father in
Germany and by his American stepmother.
The result is a portrait of
a politician that goes beyond Europe and America and beyond
terrorism to the search
for a deeper humanity.
"It's important to be reminded how easily democracies lose their grip, morally and politically, and how societies slide
towards repression and self-destructive policies in pursuit of short-term goals. I read it as a plea for a more
grown-up politics — desperately needed at the moment."
Dr Rowan Williams
