Elected MP for Londonderry in 1955, Robin Chichester-Clark was at the forefront of Northern Irish politics for almost 20 years during one of the most turbulent periods for the province.
A son and grandson of Northern Irish MPs, he held leading positions in both government and opposition, although remaining outside the UK government when Edward Heath came to power in 1970 because of his brother's position as Prime Minister of Northern Ireland.
Heath later made him Minister of State for Employment.
His dynamic career in politics was followed by over 30 years in active philanthropy, fundraising for the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and medical research, as well as several commercial directorships. Robin Chichester-Clark: A Life is written in collaboration with his widow, Caroline Chichester-Clark.
