9780007338405: Margaret Thatcher: The Autobiography

A newly edited, single-volume commemorative edition of 'The Path to Power' and 'The Downing Street Years'; this is Margaret Thatcher in her own words. Margaret Thatcher was the towering figure of late-twentieth-century British politics. Now following her death in 2013, this is her own account of her remarkable life. Beginning with her upbringing in Grantham, she goes on to describe her entry into Parliament. Rising through the ranks of this man's world, she led the Conservative Party to victory in 1979, becoming Britain's first woman prime minister. Offering a riveting firsthand version of the critical moments of her premiership - the Falklands War, the miners' strike, the Brighton bomb and her unprecedented three election victories, the book reaches a gripping climax with an hour-by-hour description of her dramatic final days in 10 Downing Street. No other single book can offer this personal perspective on her formative years, her political convictions and the unique position she came to hold in public life; Margaret Thatcher's frank and compelling autobiography stands as a powerful testament to her influential legacy.

From the Back Cover:

Margaret Thatcher is the towering political figure of late-twentieth-century Great Britain. No other prime minister in modern times sought to change the British nation and its place in the world as radically as she did.

Published in a single volume for the first time, Margaret Thatcher is the story of her remarkable life told in her own words--the definitive account of an extraordinary woman and consummate politician, bringing together her bestselling memoirs The Downing Street Years and The Path to Power. Writing candidly about her upbringing and early years and the formation of her character and values, she details the experiences that propelled her to the very top in a man's world. She offers a riveting firsthand history of the major events, the crises and triumphs, during her eleven years as prime minister, including the Falklands War, the Brighton hotel bombing, the Westland affair, the final years of the Cold War, and her unprecedented three election victories. Thatcher's judgments of the men and women she encountered during her time in power-from statesmen, premiers, and presidents to Cabinet colleagues-are astonishingly frank, and she recalls her dramatic final days in office with a gripping, hour-by-hour description from inside 10 Downing Street. Powerful, candid, and compelling, Margaret Thatcher stands as a testament to a great leader's significant legacy.

About the Author:

Margaret Thatcher's political career was one of the most remarkable of modern times. Born in Grantham in 1925, she rose to become the first woman to lead a major Western democracy. She won three successive general elections and served as prime minister for more than eleven years, from 1979 to 1990, a record unmatched in the twentieth century. She died in 2013.
