As a minister for eighteen years, Malcolm Rifkind, Scots born and educated, has seen longer uninterrupted service than anyone since Lord Palmerston in the early nineteenth century.
In both the Foreign Office and the Ministry of Defence, during some of the most turbulent years of the late twentieth century, he had a ringside seat at Margaret Thatcher's historic summit with President Gorbachev, was in charge of British troops during the Bosnian conflict, helped change Polish history during the Cold War, and held secret negotiations on the Falklands with the Argentinians. For his robustness against the Kremlin's aggression in Ukraine, he is currently banned from Russia by President Putin.
In conversation with veteran BBC reporter, Allan Little, about his thoughtful memoir Power and Pragmatism, Malcolm Rifkind will reveal the inside story from his battles with Margaret Thatcher over Scotland to his five pivotal years as chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee.
Concessions are available to students, registered disabled (plus one carer), registered unemployed, under 16s and Young Scot card holders. Proof of entitlement will be required at the door for all events. Thank you.
