Robin Cook

Robin CookIt’s been an odd experience to be finalising ‘Robin Cook: Principles and Power’ against the backdrop of the Labour leadership election. Whether it’s Europe, or multiculturalism, or the situation in Syria, we keep thinking ‘what would Robin have said?’, or found passages in the text that resonated powerfully on these contemporary issues.

But we’ve avoided the temptation to speculate on who Robin, one of the great Labour leaders of the previous generation, would have supported this time round (or, had he lived, whether he might have become leader himself after Blair, or Brown – and whether history might then have been very different…).

Hopefully this hasn’t distracted our designers and proof-readers. We’re really pleased with the cover – when we came across this image we knew it was just right, and only needed a plain title (in Helvetica, with a hint of New Labour) to round it off.

Available for pre-order from 1 July, and published on 6 August.
