Dr Garret FitzGerald was twice Taoiseach, from 1981 to 1982 and again from late 1982 to 1987, and was the driving force behind the Anglo-Irish Agreement of 1985.

In Just Garret, Dr FitzGerald writes frankly about his upbringing, his parents' involvement in the Independence movement - and their disagreements about the Treaty, his early years in school and college and his gradual entry into politics. He reflects honestly on his time as minister for Foreign Affairs, and later as Taoiseach. The book includes new material and opinion on key figures such as Charles Haughey, Margaret Thatcher and John Major - as well as the emerging peace in Northern Ireland and his role in how it came about. Ireland's role in the EU and Garret's advocacy in the referendas on the European Union also feature. The key importance of his family life and the huge influence his wife Joan had on his career reveal a more informal and humorous person who is still a compelling voice in Irish public affairs.
