As one of the foremost Conservative politicians of the 1970s and 80s, William Waldegrave witnessed the fall of Edward Heath and the rise - and eventual decline - of Margaret Thatcher. In this honest, nuanced memoir, he recalls his upbringing as the youngest son of an earl, his formative years at Eton, Oxford and Harvard, and his youthful ambition. The later chapters reflect frankly on his years in the Cabinet and his role in the controversial Poll Tax.
