Richly illustrated from the Chatham House archive and with a wealth of fascinating detail, both architectural and anecdotal, this story of a unique and historic building and some of its famous - and notorious - residents is a substantially revised edition of Charles Carrington's pamphlet Chatham House and its Neighbours: A Historical Sketch.

It charts the 80-year association of the Royal Institute of International Affairs with the house that was also home to three prime ministers and gave its name to the world-famous Chatham House Rule of confidentiality.
