內容簡介


英國前首相卡麥隆因為2016年英國脫歐公投而下台,本書是這個現代史上最受爭議的政治事件之一發生後,事件主角首次公開提及決定公投始末的自傳。

 卡麥隆在2005年選上保守黨黨魁,有鑑於之前三次大選保守黨皆敗北,卡麥隆擔任黨魁後便承諾要助保守黨走上現代化之路,他在2010年成為首相,於經濟危機的時刻,成立二戰後英國的第一個聯合政府,並且在2015年的大選為保守黨拿下睽違23年的國會多數席次。

 透過這本自傳,卡麥隆訴說這個由他領導的政府,如何透過改革教育與福利制度,使同婚合法化,承諾駐兵海外,以及先進的環保政策等現代化且充滿慈悲的計畫來改變英國的經濟。他也為在他擔任閣揆時所發生的世界重大事件提出看法,例如:阿拉伯之春,ISIS的崛起,入侵烏克蘭,利比亞、伊拉克與敘利亞的衝突事件,以及發生在英國本土的2012年奧運和蘇格蘭獨立公投。這也是他首次提出對脫歐公投的觀點,以及脫歐後英國在世界的地位提出了他的看法。

 卡麥隆以坦白真誠的文字,展現他生命與職涯中的挑戰與成就,本書也是對過去10年政治事件的重要評估,展現全球變遷時代權力的本質與領導的角色。

 

The referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union in 2016 has been one of the most controversial political events of modern times. For the first time, the man who called that vote talks about the decision and its origins, as well as giving a candid account of his time at the top of British politics. 

David Cameron was Conservative Party leader during the largest financial crash in living memory. The Arab Spring and the Eurozone crisis both started during his first year as prime minister. The backdrop to his time in office included the advent of ISIS, surging migration and a rapidly changing EU.

Here he talks about how he confronted those challenges, from modernising a party that had suffered three successive electoral defeats to forming the first coalition government for seventy years. He sets out how he helped turn around Britain's economy, implementing a modern, compassionate agenda that included education and welfare reform, the legalisation of gay marriage, the referendum on Scottish independence and world-leading environmental policies.

David Cameron is searingly honest about the key players from his time in politics. And he is frank about himself – the things he got right and the things he got wrong. He opens up about family life too, including the tragic loss of his eldest son.

We learn why he kept Britain's promise on overseas aid spending and what it was like to commit British troops to conflicts in Libya, Iraq and Syria. He sets out how he won the first outright Conservative majority in nearly a quarter of a century, and describes the events leading up to the EU referendum, the renegotiation, the campaign – and his thoughts on it all today.

It is the most compelling record yet of what it's like to lead in modern times and to live behind the most famous door in the world.
