Synopsis
Brivati writes a compelling biography about Arnold Goodman, who for twenty years, from the early 1960's, was the most powerful non-elected figure in Britain. His power was based on access to the social and political elite of the age of Harold Wilson and Edward Heath and an unparalleled network of contacts, known and feared as the 'Friends of Arnold'. He was also a formidable lawyer, involved in several high profile cases, with Wilson choosing Goodman to negotiate with the Rhodesian Prime Minister over Rhodesia's unexpected claim for independence from Britain.
