Product Description

During her tenure as Prime Minister of England, Margaret Thatcher captured the heart of America, was a friend and staunch ally of Ronald Reagan, and beloved across the United States. As Americans look back fondly to the Reagan years and the "Reagan Revolution", so they also look back fondly upon "Maggie" Thatcher's life and career. This biography also addresses her Christian faith, a matter she was quite vocal about, which informed her political decisions and defined her worldview. She was raised in a pious Methodist household and later joined the Church of England. A major motion picture based on The Iron Lady will be released in the fall of 2011, starring Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher.

Publisher's Description

The Iron Lady, the definitive Margaret Thatcher biography, is available just in time for the movie starring Meryl Streep as one of the most infamous figures in postwar politics.

Whether you love her or hate her, Margaret Thatcher's impact on twentieth-century history is undeniable. From her humble, small-town upbringing to her rise to power as the United Kingdom's first female prime minister, to her dramatic fall from grace after more than three decades of service, celebrated biographer John Campbell delves into the story of this fascinating woman's life as no one has before. The result of more than nine years of meticulous research, The Iron Lady is the only balanced, unvarnished portrait of Margaret Thatcher, one of the most vital and controversial political figures of our time.

Editorial Reviews

"Anyone who really wants to know what happened between 1979 and 1990 should read this book."
John Rentoul

"Superbly researched...unlike so many others is neither hagiography nor hatchet-job, and probably gets closer to the truth than any...magnificently told."
Michael Dobbs

"The best book yet written about Lady Thatcher."
Frank Johnson

"An enormously useful achievement...every twist and turn of her political life is here."
Matthew Paris

"I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and indeed arguing with it, because it has reminded me why many of us would never have wanted her to give up."
William Hague
