How did Margaret Thatcher change and divide Britain? How did her model of combative female leadership help shape the way we live now?
How did the woman who won the Cold War and three general elections in succession find herself pushed out by her own MPs? Charles Moore’s full account, based on unique access to Margaret Thatcher herself, her papers and her closest associates, tells the story of her last period in office, her combative retirement and the controversy that surrounded her even in death. It paints an intimate political and personal portrait of the victories and defeats, the iron will but also the surprising vulnerability of the woman who dominated in an age of male power.
