Details

From his early days as a rock music promoter and a student of socialist thought at Oxford University, Tony Blair became a member of Parliament, and then prime minister of Great Britain, in only 14 years. Finding inspiration in President Bill Clinton's political strategy, the youthful Blair made his quick rise through the Labour Party's ranks largely by advocating modernization. During his first term, he helped negotiate a major peace settlement in Northern Ireland and was a strong leader in freeing Kosovo of Slobodan Milosevic. His second term brought a greater challenge with the attacks on the United States in September 2001; Blair emerged as the primary supporter of President Bush. In May 2005, Blair won a record third term. Just two months later, terrorists struck London with four bombings that killed 52 people. Blair promised that those responsible would be punished and assured his people, "We will not be intimidated." Tony Blair tracks the former prime minister’s ascent throughout his political career.
