9780099575160: The Iron Lady: Margaret Thatcher: Grocer's Daughter to Iron Lady

The book behind the new film starring Meryl Streep: The Iron Lady. John Campbell's award-winning two volume biography of Margaret Thatcher has been edited into one, indispensable book. It is the political biography.
 
In this abridged edition of John Campbell's two acclaimed volumes on Margaret Thatcher -- used as the basis for the film The Iron Lady -- 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.

Review:

"Anyone who really wants to know what happened between 1979 and 1990 should read this book."
Daily Telegraph
 
"The best book yet written about Lady Thatcher."
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
