9780002557030: Margaret Thatcher: The Collected Speeches

Following the worldwide success of her memoirs "The Downing Street Years" and "The Path to Power", this is a collection of all the significant speeches of Margaret Thatcher's career, from her maiden speech as the young MP for Finchley in 1959 to the headline-making Keith Joseph Memorial Address which she gave in January 1996. In between are the landmarks - the speech in Brighton on the morning after the IRA bomb, the Bruges Speech, the titanic resignation speech in the Commons - and the smaller speeches which are nevertheless intensely revealing of the character and beliefs of their author. This volume forms a companion to the two volumes of Margaret Thatcher's memoirs.

From the Back Cover:

Following the world-wide success of her memoirs 'The Downing Street Years' and 'The Path to Power', here for the first time in a single volume are all the significant speeches of Margaret Thatcher's career, from her address to the Conservative Political Centre in Blackpool in 1968 to the headline making Nicholas Ridley Memorial Address which she delivered in November 1996.

In between are the landmarks – the speech in Brighton on the morning after the IRA bomb, the Bruges Speech, the titanic resignation speech in the Commons – and other speeches which are equally revealing of Lady Thatcher's character and beliefs.

This volume forms a companion to the two volumes of Margaret Thatcher's memoirs, and will be required reading for all students of twentieth century history – and of great oratory of any period.
