9780007456635: The Downing Street Years

This first volume of Margaret Thatcher's memoirs, which encompasses the entirety of her career as Prime Minister.

Margaret Thatcher was the towering figure of late-twentieth-century British politics. This is the story of her remarkable life in her own words.

This first volume of her memoirs is a riveting first-hand portrait of the events and personalities of her eleven years in power. She recalls the triumphs and the critical moments of her premiership – the Falklands War, the miners' strike, the Brighton bomb, the Westland Affair and her unprecedented three election victories. Her judgements of the men and women she encountered, whether world statesmen or Cabinet colleagues, are astonishingly frank. She is lavish with her praise; devastating with her criticism. The book reaches a gripping climax with an hour-by-hour description from inside 10 Downing Street of her dramatic final days in office.

Margaret Thatcher's compelling account stands as a powerful testament to her influential legacy.

Although ‘The Downing Street Years’ is not available as an ebook, the ebook ‘Margaret Thatcher: The Autobiography’ (ISBN 978-0-00-741694-3) comprises abridged versions of this and the first volume of Thatcher’s memoirs, ‘The Path to Power’.

Review:

‘A book which should be read by everyone with any interest in contemporary history of political affairs’ Norman Tebbit, Daily Mail

‘Some things in this life are priceless. So are Margaret Thatcher’s guts. They have left their mark on the world. So will “The Downing Street Years”’ Daily Express

From the Back Cover:

'The Downing Street Years' is, first and foremost, a brilliant first-hand portrayal of the events and personalities of her years in power. She gives riveting accounts of the great and critical moments of her premiership – the election victories, the Falklands War, the Miners’ Strike, the Brighton Bomb, the Westland Affair, her battles abroad with foreign federalists and at home with faint-hearted or misguided ministers. Her judgements of the men and women she has encountered, whether world statesmen or Cabinet colleagues, are completely, sometimes brutally frank. She is lavish with praise where it is due: devastating in her criticism when it is not. The tape ends with an account of her last days which is as gripping as anything in thriller fiction.
