Why did Margaret Thatcher fall? How did her successor win the Tory crown, and with it the coveted position of Prime Minister? What will the new leadership mean for the Tory Party? This book explores these questions and the author attempts to discover the reasons behind the sudden fall of one of Britain's longest serving 20th century Prime Ministers and assesses the legacy bequeathed to her successor. Present day intrigues and uncertainties are placed into the longer perspective of Tory beliefs and the record of Tory leaders, since the days of Robert Peel, more than a century and a half ago.
