Why did Tony Blair take Britain to war with Iraq? Because, this book argues, he was following the core political beliefs and style - the Blair identity - manifest and consistent throughout his decade in power. Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, and finally Iraq were wars to which Blair was drawn due to his black-and-white framing of the world, his overwhelming confidence that he could shape events, and his tightly-held, presidential style of government. In this new application of political psychology to the British prime ministership, Dyson analyses every answer Blair gave to a foreign policy.
