Collateral Damage: Britain, America and Europe in the Age of Trump [9780008411572]

@realDonaldTrump: 'The wacky ambassador that the UK foisted on the United States is not someone we are thrilled with, a very stupid guy... We will no longer deal with him'

Kim Darroch was British Ambassador to the US as the age of Trump dawned and Brexit unfolded. One of the UK's most experienced and respected diplomats, his unvarnished, behind-the-scenes account will reveal the inside story behind his resignation; describe the challenges of dealing with the Trump White House; and offer a diplomat's perspective on Brexit, and how it looked to Britain's closest ally.

As the closest Brit to the story, Darroch explains why the British embassy expected a Trump victory from as early as February 2016, what part every key figure - from Sarah Sanders to Michael Flynn - has played in Trump's administration, and what balanced policy makers on both sides of the Atlantic should consider during this era of seismic change and populist politics.

A riveting account from the best-informed insider, Collateral Damage charts the strangest and most convulsive period in the recent history of Britain and the US - and shows how 30 months threatened to overturn three centuries of history.

‘Much bigger and more ambitious than a first-person “rise and fall” … Great vignettes and classy analysis from the man who until a year ago sat at the top of the diplomatic tree … There is nothing dusty or dry in his account of dealing with the twin forces of Boris and Donald, and how they’ve shaped politics – and his life’ Guardian
