Book Description Simon & Schuster Ltd, London, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: Mint. Dust Jacket Condition: Mint. First Edition. THATCHER'S BRITAIN The Politics and Social Upheaval of the 1980s Richard Vinen. Simon & Schuster, London 2009 First edition ISBN 9781847371751 404pp Hardback This mint unread copy is bound in cloth covered boards with bright gilt titling to the spine, tight, white, bright and square. The unclipped dust wrapper is also in mint condition. This book was published in 2009 to mark thirty years since Margaret Thatcher entered Downing Street. Thatcher was the longest serving prime minister of the twentieth-century and her period in government coincided with extraordinary changes in British society and in Britain's place in the world. Thatcher's image permeates, not just discussion of recent British history, but also films and novels -- there has even been a musical based on her career. Curiously, the emphasis on Thatcher as a kind of cultural icon has often gone with a declining interest in the details of what her government did. This book tells the story of Thatcherism for a generation with no personal memories of the 1980s -- as well as for those who want to revisit the polemics of their youth. It aims to describe Thatcherism in a way that is both detached and engaging. Most of all, it seeks to rescue Margaret Thatcher from being seen as John the Baptist for Tony Blair. It stresses that Thatcherism was not a timeless phenomenon that can be traced back into the nineteenth century or transported forward into the twenty-first. It was rooted in the 1970s and 1980s, a time when the Soviet empire seemed to be expanding and when the British economy seemed to be on its deathbed.
