In his own inimitable style, Boris Johnson, the new Mayor of London, turns his attention to the culture, manners and morals of British society, giving us a humorous, at times furious, but always entertaining read.

A witty anthology of pieces comprising Boris Johnson's thoughts on everything from Tony Blair to the idiosyncrasies of modern British culture.

With new artilces on subjects as varied as Iraq, football, population control and bike theft, Johnson takes us on a rollercoaster ride through contemporary Britain. He has also interviewed many of the key figures in the political and cultural worlds over the last sixteen years and addresses what these personalities tell of our age.

Boris Johnson is one of the great political characters of our time and his writings have appeared in a variety of British and American magazines and newspapers. Vigorous, idiosyncratic, always intelligent and informed, with a very interesting perspective on our times, `Have I Got Views For You' is a pleasure to read.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for `Have I Got Views for You':

'Johnson is a good-humoured, entertaining commentator, with an agreeably optimistic bent.' Observer

Praise for 'The Dream of Rome':

'As an introduction to the history of the Roman empire, this book is hugely stimulating. I read it in two sittings, completely gripped. If Ruth Kelly has an ounce of sense, she will make this book compulsory reading for every 16-year old in the country.' Toby Young, New Statesman

'History comes alive only when written from the heart and Johnson's is full of swashbuckling japes, bloodthirsty yells and energetic sideswipes.' Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday

'Written with all the wit and zest that have helped to make him Britain's favourite celebrity MP.' Tom Holland, Daily Telegraph

'Johnson has not been intimidated by dry classics masters: his style is bright, breezy, populist and pacy' The Times

'Described with his special combination of sharp-eyed intelligence and golly-gosh exclamation...the sublime and the bizarre are richly represented in this portrayal of ancient Rome...a splendid romp through the Roman world' Sunday Telegraph
