No recent book by a politician of any political persuasion has been so engaging, so outspoken - and often so funny. If Chris Patten is no longer the diplomat, it is the readers of this book who are the beneficiaries.

NOT. QUITE. THE. DIPLOMAT. 25. After the handover, Joe remained in Hong
Kong for six months, but Isabella left him for Miles almost immediately. Certain
women, I suppose, might have been thrilled to discover that their boyfriend was
not a run-of-the-mill shipping clerk, but instead a spy doing work of unimaginable
importance on behalf of the secret state. But not Isabella. She felt utterly betrayed.
It was as if Joe had been deliberately toying with her emotions; she would not
listen to ...

CHAPTER VII THE THIEF OF THE SNUFFBOX An accident happened to Sir
Desmond O'Brien about this time which is not quite unconnected with the thin
thread of this narrative. It is, too, an incident which illustrates the value of human
testimony and throws a droll light upon the whole of our judicial proceedings
which are supposed to be a circuitous road to justice, and shows that the
ancients were right in personifying Justice as a woman (and that is, fickleness)
and had even gone ...

Gina, who enticed and excited him. Gina, who'd erased everything and everyone
else from his mind. * * * Jack came out of a deep sleep with his customary, instant
awareness. The hotel room was still dark, the silence deep, although a faint gray
light was just beginning to show at the edge of the drapes blanketing the window.
Gina lay sprawled at his side. Soft puffs of air escaped her lips with each breath.
Not quite snores but close enough to make him smile. With slow, careful moves ...

As so often, I had promised myself I would be good, and work, but not quite yet. I
wanted to see the big parade, to spot the tanks and guns and rockets and trucks
in Egypt's armoury. I wanted to see who was on the saluting base with President
Sadat, as he and his ministers and generals celebrated the eighth anniversary of
his great and only — the Arabs' great and only — military victory over Israel, the
Yom Kippur or Ramadan War of October 1973. I couldn't go in person, but the ...

There have, however, been cases where governments have clearly abused the
right of declaring a diplomat as persona non-grata which a receiving state
possesses. Instances have occurred when as a weapon of the cold war, a state
has declared a diplomatic agent as persona non-grata merely on the ground that
one of its own agents has been so declared by the other state. It is not quite clear
as to whetherastate was bound to give reasons for declaring a diplomat persona

"I hope my sudden arrival did not offend them," Da-ud said. "Perhaps you should
apologize for me. Apologize too for my ignorance of your language." "Then I must
apologize for theirs," said MacGregor. "No. No." Da-ud removed his hat, and even
in the darkness by the small fire they could see his long white hair. "I do not look
like an old man but I am quite old," he said, "and I should know all there is to
know. At my age ignorance of anything is inexcusable." He was making polite ...

Her summer-streaked hair was loose on her shoulders, not quite the lion's mane
she'd had as a student in Paris, but certainly more becoming than the knot she
wore to the office. She turned sideways, checking the arch of back that her heels
caused, the flat stomach, the still narrow waist and outline of her breasts which
the dress subtly emphasized. Stepping closer she tried to see whether there was
anything new about her face that Ammar wouldn't remember. There were some
