Book news: Tony Blair’s memoirs due in September

It was announced today that former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s memoirs will be published in September. The book, titled The Journey, is due to be published by Random House. As one of the most significant political figures of recent years, Blair’s memoirs can be counted on to give his version of his premiership’s successes, such as constitutional reforms and the Good Friday agreement, and its great failure, the Iraq War, which has so far almost entirely overshadowed the rest of his legacy (although we can expect the failure to be fermently denied).
Tony Blair’s “partner in crime”, George W. Bush, will also appear in print this autumn, with the memoir Decision Points. This book will not be a traditional autobiography, but focus on some of the key decisions made by Bush as President of the USA. Meanwhile Karl Rove is releasing his own memoirs, Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight, this coming Tuesday.
