Reviews

'I am pleased that Gordon Brown's speeches have been collected for publication. Reading them gives an insight into the man behind the politician, and the values behind the policies. These are values we share: values of fairness and liberty and, above all, justice. Gordon Brown brings determination to the fight against intentional poverty, and it is rooted in a sense of justice that extends beyond Britain's shores. His speeches show a vision of a better world for all, a vision to which he is deeply committed' Nelson Mandela
