9780593058916: Not for Turning: The Life of Margaret Thatcher

Margaret Thatcher is one of the most iconic politicians of the twentieth century. With the possible exception of Winston Churchill, no other Prime Minister has had such an impact on modern British history. Like it or not, her radical social and economic policies have made Britain the country it is today. Without Margaret Thatcher there could have been no New Labour, no Tony Blair and no David Cameron.

Now Robin Harris, for many years Thatcher's speechwriter, trusted adviser and the draftsman of two volumes of her autobiography, has written the defining book about this indomitable woman. He tells her extraordinary life story, from humble beginnings above her father's grocer's shop in Grantham, her early days as one of the first women in Westminster who became known as 'Thatcher milk-snatcher' during her days in the Ministry for Education and then as Prime Minister. We follow her through the 'Winter of Discontent', the tribulations of the miners' strike and the Falklands War. And Harris writes a stunning account of her exit from power and tells of her life after number 10.

Recensione:

"The political biography of the decade" ( Daily Mail)

"No-holds-barred, well-written... contains the most authoritative account of her life after leaving office... a dramatic account." (Philip Webster The Times)

"[a] lively and accessible insider's account" (Peter Clarke Financial Times)

"After all the eulogies, it is refreshing to read about an odd, driven, believable person – rather than some abstract national saviour or demon... Harris is like a long-faithful courtier freed by a monarch's death to speak the truth about them." (Andy Beckett Guardian)

"Remarkable... A vivid and concise study in adversity, triumph and treachery." (Daniel Johnson Standpoint)

"Readable and well-informed... detailed and fascinating" (Philip Ziegler Spectator)

"A pacy and entertaining book... well-sourced and packed with anecdotes. A first rate potted history." (Patrick O'Flynn Express)

"Irresistible reading ... the brilliance of Harris's gift for narrative has not deserted him." (Ferdinand Mount Times Literary Supplement)

"Excellent" (Andrew Gimson Conservative Home)

"Insightful and very readable. Its strength lies in its personal approach." (Jack Carrigan Catholic Herald)

Descrizione del libro:

The defining biography of Margaret Thatcher, written by a member of her inner circle
