Few modern women have had as great a political impact as Margaret Hilda Roberts, the grocer's daughter from Grantham who, as Margaret Thatcher, became Britain's first woman prime minister. The longest serving British premier of the twentieth century, Mrs Thatcher has been the subject of both adulation and vilification. In Margaret Thatcher: A Life and Legacy, the leading historian Sir David Cannadine sets Margaret Thatcher in the context of recent British history.

With elegance, wit, and historical insight, Cannadine charts Mrs Thatcher's upbringing and influences, her political career and life after politics, the impact of her policies, and her personal reputation and political legacy. The book also features a glossary of key terms, a chronology, a 'dramatis personae' of significant figures of the period, and a guide to further reading.

Written by one of our foremost international historians, it is an essential work for anyone interested in the life and work of a towering―and often controversial― figure in modern British history, as well as students, academics, and researchers in the fields of modern history and politics.

Review:

Condensed biography with excellent analysis... David Cannadine Margaret Thatcher A Life and Legacy (OUP) is just the ticket. (Keith Simpson, Total Politics)

This carefully crafted essay is welcome above all because it concisely distils major episodes such as the "Big Bang" (WM Roger Louis, Times Literary Supplement)

The historian is successful in setting the "Iron Lady" in the broader historical context. (Thompson Chau, Myanmar Times)

An elegant, even-handed and economical overview of the life and legacy of Margaret Thatcher (Robbie Millen, The Times)

This concise book avoids the usual controversies and offers a new analysis of Thatcher's sweeping economic reforms ... artfully concise book (William Davies, The Guardian)

This short format, shorn of extraneous detail, makes it somehow easier to take an overview of the Thatcher years. (Roland White, The Sunday Times)

a masterpiece of compression (John Campbell, Financial Times)
