He describes his rural upbringing in Wiltshire; his schooling at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge; his early career in the diplomatic service, with postings in Peking, New York and Rome; and his tenure as Edward Heath's political secretary at 10 Downing Street in the early 1970s, before he became an MP in 1974." "With the Conservative victory in 1979, Douglas Hurd entered government as a junior minister. Here, he charts his steady rise through the ranks: his time as Northern Ireland Secretary, and then as Home Secretary and Foreign Secretary. He describes the characters and conflicts of the Thatcher and Major years, including his candidature in the 1990 leadership election." "But it was the post of Foreign Secretary that Douglas Hurd had always hoped for, and he chronicles the remarkable events that shaped his time at the Foreign Office: the collapse of communism in eastern Europe and the reunification of Germany; the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and the 1991 Gulf War; the negotiations over the Maastricht Treaty; the Balkan crisis of the early 1990's; and the handover of Hong Kong."--BOOK JACKET." ;
