We are all very excited about the upcoming release of Paddy Ashdown's memoirs, A Fortunate Life. It promises an intriguing insight into the political landscape of the late 1980s and 1990s. As high representative in Bosnia - Herzegovina (2002-2006) and recommended for the role of UN representative in Afghanistan as well as Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, Lord Ashdown was deeply involved in global and British politics. This is a highly readable, fascinatingly detailed memoir of a life of a unique politician.
The Autobiography of Paddy Ashdown: A Fortunate Life will be published in April 2009 by Aurum Press and is priced at £20.
