Edinburgh 12/08/2007. International Book Festival. Lord David Owen. British politician, Chancellor of the University of Liverpool and one of the founders of the British Social Democratic Party (SDP).

He is also known for becoming the youngest person in over forty years to hold the post of British Foreign Secretary (from 1977 to 1979) and as one of the authors of the failed Vance-Owen and Owen-Stoltenberg peace plans offered during the Bosnian War. He has been a controversial figure for much of his career, inspiring great devotion among close followers but also disaffection due to perceived arrogance.
