Margaret Thatcher: Grocer's Daughter to Iron Lady

Front Cover
Vintage, 2009 - Great Britain - 564 pages
In this abridged edition of John Campbell's two standalone volumes on Margaret Thatcher we trace the life of Britain's only female Prime Minister, from her upbringing in Grantham to her unexpected challenge to Edward Heath for leadership of the Conservative party and her eventual removal from power. This is an extraordinary account of an extraordinary woman; John Campbell portrays an ambitious and determined woman who may have begun her career in office almost timidly but who became increasingly remote and arrogant after the Falklands, eventually losing the trust of her colleagues.
