This is an auction for THE THIRD MAN by Peter Mandelson.

‘Gossip, intrigue and scandal…a truthful and witty account’
- New Statesman

‘Shines a brutal light on the conflicts at the heart of Labour’s leadership’
- The Guardian

‘A revealing and important book by a more winning individual than I had expected to encounter’
- Matthew Parris

‘A very good book…Fluently written and substantial, this is a serious book by a serious man’
- Sunday Telegraph

‘A compelling account of the New Labour years. Revealing and subtle…The book should be read by anyone remotely interested in politics’
- The Independent review:

"William Hague once joked that the only title that Mandelson lacked under the Brown Government was that of Archbishop. Love him or hate him Mandelson is the consummate politician and media showman. Watching interviews by him in support of this book he is still playing down the level of visceral hatred that consumed the New Labour Project but for every one page of analysis in "The Third Man" there are at least another twenty which highlight the chronic dysfunction and the bitter tribalist soap opera that consumed British Government after 1997. Everything about this book is controversial. You suspect that while Mandelson may be the "Third Man" and that his story is well told (if sometimes in very cringeworthy terms) this is a three act drama that has yet to fully unfold and the political dagger that hangs over the New Labour project may yet to be fully drawn."
