THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

Politics has changed. For decades Britain was divided between Left and Right but united in its belief in a two-party state. Now, with nationalism resurgent and mainstream parties in turmoil, stark new divisions define the country and the centre ground is deserted.

Nick Clegg witnessed this change from the inside. Here he offers a frank account of his experiences and puts the case for a new politics based on reason and compromise.

He writes candidly about the tense stand-offs within government and the decision to enter coalition with the Conservatives in the first place. He also lifts the lid on the arcane worlds of Westminster and Brussels, the vested interests that suffocate reform, as well as the achievements his party made despite them.

Whatever your political persuasion, if you wish to understand politics in Britain today you cannot afford to ignore this book.

People of all political persuasions owe Nick Clegg a debt that I have no doubt history will acknowledge -- John Major This is an important book: a revealing analysis of British politics today and why it urgently needs reform -- Shirley Williams Essential reading for anyone fearful of the rise of populist extremism or who thinks coalitions are the future of British politics -- Robert Peston This engrossing account is written with a warmth and generosity that can't have been easy to sustain given the trials and tribulations he recounts so entertainingly -- Alan Johnson A compelling account from the inside of the strange, sad death of liberal Britain. This is a passionate plea for the centre ground, which has never seemed so remote (or precious) in our current political dispensation -- Ian McEwan
