What is it about this deeply Christian man that has given him such a taste for war?" "In Blair's Wars, journalist John Kampfner gives the inside story of a man who came to office with no experience of - and virtually no interest in - foreign affairs but who quickly moulded himself into a man on a mission: to punish dictators and spread democracy across the globe. To do that he fell back on the basic tenets of British diplomacy, a yearning for friendship with the United States and a reliance on the armed forces, while proclaiming his vision in the more modern guise of liberal intervention."--Jacket." ;
