    Tony Benn's diaries began in 1940, and have been compared to those of Pepys in their detail, scope, and accuracy. This volume brings them right up to date, covering the Gulf War, the rise of New Labour, international repercussions of American foreign policy, and reactions against it.

    Overall

    Regardless of ones views on his politics, you can't but be warmed by this personal account of a remarkable decade in British Politics.

    Tony Benn brings a unique, witty and warm insight into some of the headlines of the day; his diary style is light - yet profound, happy, moving and sometimes sad moments are captured.

    For the benefit of US listeners - Tony Benn is unique. Here he is reading his own diaries - and really bringing them to life. He is easy to listen to; a familiar voice retelling his experiences.

    I recommend this audiobook.

  • The Adventure of English: The Biography of a Language

    Story
    (710)

    This is the remarkable story of the English language; from its beginnings as a minor guttural Germanic dialect to its position today as a truly established global language. The Adventure of English is not only an enthralling story of power, religion, and trade, but also the story of people, and how their lives continue to change the extraordinary language that is English.

    Amazon Customer says: "Many Of Course monments"
    "Comprehensive, engaging and informative"
    Overall

    Although this book has a running time of just over twelve hours; the listener is soon immersed and lost in this treasury by Melvyn Bragg. Covering the full span of time from the earliest European roots of English to the most current usage - this is a must listen.

    Robert Powell is the perfect reader for this book; his natural style and easy meter really compliment the content.
