CHRIS PATTEN
Politics & Identity – Who Am I?
Who Are We?
Chris Patten charts his life from the outer
suburbs to the House of Commons, Hong
Kong, the BBC and nowOxford University.
In
First Confessions,
he uses each phase of
his life to reflect upon its contemporary
situation – education, America,
conservatism, Ireland, China, Europe and the
links between violence and religion.
A meditation on
personal and political
identity, Chris reveals
himself as someone
who continues to think
passionately about the
world around him.
