  • "Donoughue's diaries of his time as political advisor to Jim Callaghan are proving gripping reading"

    The Times
  • "Superb book... historians will plunder the Donughue diaries to gain an understanding of one of the great turning points in modern British history. But this book also has a huge contemporary resonance. It is very accessible to the general reader an I cannot recommend it highly enough"

    Daily Mail
  • "An admirable and important contribution to British history ... A copy of Donoughue's fascinating book should be sent to every minister in office"

    Roy Hattersley, Observer
  • "As an inside account of the collective political nervous breakdown suffered by the Labour movement in the late Seventies, these diaries have no equal"
