CHARLES MOORE IN CONVERSATION WITH SAVILIAN DAVID OLDROYD-BOLT: MARGARET THATCHER: THE AUTHORIZED BIOGRAPHY, VOLUME THREE: HERSELF ALONE
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 includes the Fall of the Berlin Wall which she had fought for and the rise of the modern EU which she feared. It lays bare her growing quarrels with colleagues and reveals the truth about her political assassination.
