Twice President of France, Jacques Chirac was one of the most influential European politicians of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. In this frank and often witty memoir, he looks back over his rise to power and the challenges of office in the midst of momentous world events. Outspokenly critical of Israel's policy towards the Palestinians and George W Bush's invasion of Iraq, he offers a fascinating glimpse of the forces that shaped the world we live in today. Felt tip mark on upper trimmed edge. American-cut pages.
