9780143120872: The Iron Lady: Margaret Thatcher, from Grocer's Daughter to Prime Minister

In this abridged edition of John Campbell's two acclaimed volumes on Margaret Thatcher, we trace the life of Britain's only female Prime Minister, from her upbringing in Grantham to her unexpected challenge for leadership of the Conservative party to her eleven tumultuous years in Downing Street and her eventual removal from power.

This is an extraordinary account of an extraordinary individual who changed the face of Britain; John Campbell portrays an ambitious and determined woman who started cautiously, grew in confidence after the Falklands War but became increasingly remote and domineering until she finally lost the trust of her colleagues.

Review:

"Anyone who really wants to know what happened between 1979 and 1990 should read this book" (John Rentoul Daily Telegraph)

"The best book yet written about Lady Thatcher" (Frank Johnson Daily Telegraph)

"Superbly researched...unlike so many others is neither hagiography nor hatchet-job, and probably gets closer to the truth than any...magnificently told" ( Sunday Express)

"An enormously useful achievement...every twist and turn of her political life is here" ( The Times, Books of the Year)

"[A] thorough biography... brought together in a useful abridged paperback version... Campbell is a leading political biographer... Campbell's vivid account is easy to read" ( Financial Times)

Review:

"thorough biography... Campbell is a leading political biographer... Campbell's vivid account is easy to read"
