"Letwin does a superb job of describing Thatcherism's moral aspirations, which is where politics get forged...the beauty of the book is the way it connects policy details to fundamental philosophy and shows how the latter drives the former." "--"David Brooks," Wall Street Journal" "Letwin writes about Thatcherism in ways untypical of most political scientists. She presents her understand-ing of the underlying purposes of Thatcherism and then clearly analyzes the policies of Prime Minister Thatcher's governments of 1979-90 to illustrate how those pur-poses were pursued." --Leon D. Epstein, Political Science Quarterly "A refreshingly novel, and at times insightful analysis of the essence of Thatcherism--as a moral, rather than economic, response to the conditions of 20th-century Britain." --J.B. Freyman, Choice "A felicitously written, thoughtful study that illuminates what she terms 'the bundle of attributes' that make up Thatcherism." --Irwin M. Selzer, National Interest "An Anatomy of Thatcherism is distinguished from virtu-ally every other book on current politics by its philosophi-cal sophistication. It is this which allows Mrs. Letwin to explain how Thatcherism (and Conservatism in general) can be coherent without being theoretical." --Kenneth Minogue, National Review
