Auteur: Jeremy Paxman
In this penetrating book, Jeremy Paxman sets out to discover the true sources of power in 1990s Britain and to identify the Establishment. Friends In High Places reads like a travel adventure.
It is an invaluable guide to the networks of influence. For years, people have managed simultaneously to believe that a traditional ruling class survives and that the country is now in the hands of a meritocracy. Jeremy Paxman examines this contradiction and, by scrutinizing the backgrounds of MPs, company directors, judges, generals and mandarins, sets out to discover whether the Old Boy Network really has been cast aside.
His conclusions are stimulating and will encourage a reassessment of those who hold power. Travelling from the National Theatre to the Bank of England, from Clubland to Whitehall, from The Times' boardroom to Buckingham Palace, from Eton to Westminster and from Rothschilds to Lambeth Palace, in interviews with over 150 prominent members of British society, Jeremy Paxman uncovers the intricate relationship between power, class and money.
Packed with revelations, anecdote and humour, this book is both controversial and thought-provoking. Jeremy Paxman's journey of discovery challenges all our assumptions about the framework of power in Britain.
