Investigative journalist and historian Tom Bower looks at Tony Blair’s decade in power and the years following his resignation and asks what went wrong for Labour’s longest-serving premier.

Bower was among those excited by Blair’s arrival in Downing Street in 1997. He has had unprecedented access to Whitehall officials, military officers and politicians for his story of the Blair years and of the extraordinary commercial empire Blair has built up since leaving office. Bower asks what the truth is behind Blair’s claims of rebuilding schools, hospitals and welfare services, looks at why he opened the doors to mass immigration and questions why Blair has earned millions serving dictators despite being the same man who risked his government to take on Slobodan Milosevic and Saddam Hussein.

Bower is an investigative historian, journalist and broadcaster. He is a former producer and reporter for BBC television and author of biographies of Robert Maxwell, Mohammed Fayed, Gordon Brown, Richard Branson, Conrad Black, Bernie Ecclestone and Simon Cowell. His investigation into corruption in English football, Broken Dreams, won the William Hill Sports Book of the Year.
