When Margaret Thatcher unexpectedly emerged to challenge Edward Heath for the Conservative leadership in 1975, the public knew her only as the archetypal Tory lady, more famous for her hats than for any outstanding talent. Yet, almost overnight, she reinvented herself. Within weeks of her becoming Tory leader an entirely new image was in place, based around the now-famous grocer's shop in Grantham, the strict Methodist upbringing, and her father who taught her the "Victorian values" that were the foundations of her subsequent career.

About the Author:

John Campbell is the author of biographies of Lloyd George (1977), F.E. Smith (1983), Roy Jenkins (1983), Aneurin Bevan (1986) and Edward Heath (1994).

Review:

"John Campbell succeeds brilliantly with this second volume of his biography of Britain's first woman prime minister. His account - compelling, often exhilarating and, in its closing pages, genuinely moving - portrays Thatcher's political career as a tragedy worthy of Shakespeare" -- John Willman * Financial Times * "Anyone who wants to know what really happened between 1979 and 1990 should read this book" -- John Rentoul * Daily Telegraph * "A brilliantly researched, thoroughly sourced version of the most remarkable premiership of our time" -- Huw Edwards * Books of the Year, The Times * "'An enormously useful achievement... every twist and turn of her political life is here'" * The Times * "'I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and indeed arguing with it, because it has reminded me why so many of us would never have wanted her to give up'" -- William Hague * Daily Telegraph *
