"I came from a family of barely solvent aristocrats…"
So begins one of the most refreshingly honest memoirs to have appeared in recent years. Richard Needham looks back on a life that straddles the worlds of commerce and politics, and that deeply influenced both those spheres.
In captivating style, he traces his journey from innovative businessman to visionary – and often controversial – politician and back again to his roots in the commercial world. From Thatcher to Arafat, from Northern Ireland to China, the reader is treated to caustic wit, humorous anecdotes, and frank verdicts on those with whom he came into contact.
One Man, Two Worlds is an engaging addition to the social and political record of the life and turbulent times of Sir Richard Needham, 6th Earl of Kilmorey.
