Following the worldwide success of her memoirs The Downing Street Years – the best selling British autobiography of recent 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.
The speeches range 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 previously unrecorded 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 and will be an indispensable third volume for all who own the previous books. It will also, of course, be required reading for all students of twentieth-century history – and of great oratory of any kind.
