Margaret Thatcher


Margaret Hilda Thatcher (born October 13th 1925) was the British Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990.

Margaret Thatcher

Prior to the war, with the country mired in a deep recession, her popularity was at an all-time low for a serving British Prime Minister. However, the successful recapture of the Falkland Islands, led to a wave of patriotic sentiment, and Thatcher subsequently won a landslide victory in the 1983 as a result of the "Falklands Factor" combined with the beginnings of economic recovery.

Margaret Thatcher continued to serve as British Prime Minister until 1990, when she resigned as a result of a leadership challenge within her own party.

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 lays bare her growing quarrels with colleagues and reveals the truth about her political assassination. Moore's three-part biography of Britain's most important peacetime prime minister paints an intimate political and personal portrait of the victories and defeats, the iron will but surprising vulnerability of the woman who dominated in an age of male power. This is the full, enthralling story.

Product Description:

A strong and sometimes divisive figure in British and world politics, Margaret Thatcher was the longest-serving British Prime Minister in the 20th century and the only woman to ever hold the office. Drawing from an abundance of new, previously unpublished material from the Thatcher Archive at Churchill College, Cambridge, Jonathan Aitken's fresh and original biography is a lively and perceptive exploration of the personality that dominated conservative British politics for more than 10 years and her profound and worldwide impact on the historical tapestry of her time. At once positive and critical in its assessment of her governance, Margaret Thatcher: Power and Personality is crafted from the author's longtime personal relationship with his subject, his eyewitness account of public and private episodes in her life, and more than 100 interviews with the former Prime Minister's political colleagues and close personal friends. Penetrating and insightful, it chronicles one of the most remarkable political lives of our time.

Product Description:
With unequaled authority and dramatic detail, the first volume of Charles Moore's authorized biography of Margaret Thatcher reveals as never before the early life, rise to power, and initial period as prime minister of the woman who transformed Britain and the world in the late twentieth century. 

Moore illuminates Thatcher's youth--her relationship with her parents and early romantic attachments, including her courtship and marriage to Denis Thatcher--moving forward to the determination and boldness that marked even the very beginning of her political career. His account of her political relationship with Ronald Reagan is riveting. Throughout Moore explores in compelling detail the obstacles and indignities that Thatcher encountered as a woman in what was still overwhelmingly a man's world. 

A clear-eyed, fair account, conveying Thatcher's remarkable talents and sometimes infuriating qualities, Moore's portrait enlivens the woman who was prime minister for more than a decade (1979-1990), re-creating the circumstances and experiences that shaped one of the most significant world leaders of the postwar era.

Product Description:

In June 1983 Margaret Thatcher won the biggest increase in a government’s parliamentary majority in British electoral history and proceeded to transform relations with Europe, prioritize British industry, and reinvigorate the economy. For the only time since Churchill, Britain had a central place in dealings between the superpowers. But even at her zenith, Thatcher was best by difficulties. She regularly faced calls for resignation, grew isolated in her own government, butted heads with the Queen, bullied her senior colleagues, and was deceived by her closest ally, Ronald Reagan, during the U.S. invasion of Grenada. 

Boasting unprecedented access to Thatcher colleagues, friends, family, and all her government and private papers, Moore offers a groudbreaking and essential portrait of a titanic figure, with all her capabilities and flaw, during the years of her greatest power. Thatcher storms from these pages as from no other book.

Product Description:

Margaret Hilda Thatcher, Baroness Thatcher was a British stateswoman who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party. She was the longest-serving British prime minister of the 20th century and the first woman to hold that office. A Soviet journalist dubbed her the Iron Lady, a nickname that became associated with her uncompromising politics and leadership style.

Inside you’ll read about

  • The early childhood
  • Makes an entry into Public Office
  • Takes on the role as Prime Minister
  • Influences foreign policies
  • Resigns as Prime Minister
  • The theory of Thatcherism and Effects of Thatcher’s Policies

And much more!

Thatcher introduced a series of economic policies intended to reverse high unemployment and Britain's struggles in the wake of the Winter of Discontent and an ongoing recession. Thatcher's popularity in her first years in office waned amid recession and increasing unemployment, until victory in the Falklands War and the recovering economy brought a resurgence of support, resulting in her decisive re-election. She survived an assassination attempt in the Brighton hotel bombing.
