Margaret Thatcher: Power and Personality

About the Book

Margaret Thatcher: Power and Personality

A strong and sometimes divisive figure in British and world politics, Margaret Thatcher was the longest-serving British Prime Minister in the twentieth century and the only woman to ever hold the office. Drawing from an abundance of new, previously unpublished material from the Thatcher Papers at Churchill College, Cambridge, Jonathan Aitken’s fresh and original biography is a lively and perceptive exploration of the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 ten 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 one hundred 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.
