    Descriptive info: ALISTAIR DARLING: BACK FROM THE BRINK.. 1,000 Days of the World Financial Crisis; Alistair Darling in Conversation with former Energy Minister the Rt Hon.. Brian Wilson.. For most of us, the dealings of the money markets are uncanny, mysterious and ‘beyond our ken’.. In that the post of Chancellor is about predicting, pre-empting and shaping the economic future, the gift of Second Sight might reasonably be expected to be in the person specification.. You don’t need to have an interest in politics to want to attend this event.. That you (still) have a bank account should be enough.. Alasdair Darling.. Alistair Darling is the MP for Edinburgh South West.. He has strong connections with the Isle of Lewis.. Initially appointed as chief Secretary to the Treasury in 1997, he  ...   book Back from the Brink tells the gripping story of 1,000 days of crisis as all over the world financial institutions thought ‘too big to fail’ fell prey to the toxic US sub-prime mortgage market..

He is the author of several books which include “The Person of Christ”,  ...   coincidences, interrupted by encounters with Jung and echoes of the Big Bang.. Very human at its heart, and tinged with mysticism, yet unmistakeably reflecting its own time; and a fascinating reminder that scientist, poet and religious seeker can happily inhabit one and same mind.. ’ Professor Donald Macleod,.. ‘The story told in this book is inextricably linked to their island upbringing and cultural background, to the extent that it is unlikely to have been written in these terms by people less familiar with the traditional ‘world view’ of island societies.. It is a very personal story, and one which honestly seeks to understand and interpret the events they have experienced and the conflicting intellectual and religious ideas to which they have been exposed.. John Randall, chairman of publishers the Islands Book Trust.. Myles and Margaret will be giving four presentations for Faclan 2011 in Uist, Barra, Harris, and Lewis..
