This volume studies Margaret Thatcher and her influence on British politics with the American reader in mind. E. Bruce Geelhoed interprets Thatcher's strengths and weaknesses as a political leader and analyzes the important trends in modern British politics. Drawing on the author's own experience as an expatriate eyewitness to the latter part of the Thatcher era, interviews with numerous British scholars and political observers, and a thorough examination of relevant published sources on the Thatcher years, this book provides an unique analysis of this extraordinary woman's leadership and the closing years of her era.

Editorial Reviews

?Nearly two years after her resignation as Prime Minister and leader of the Conservative Party, Thatcher's rancorous leadership style continues to fascinate observers of European politics. Geelhoed was in Britain when Thatcher's controversial reign came to an abrupt end. He offers a largely positive (if somewhat bland) assessment of her government's policies in the areas of defense, industrial relations, and the welfare state. Geelhoed also casts a critical eye on the transformation of Neil Kinnock's Labour Party in this period.?-Library Journal
