Margaret Thatcher is one of the towering politicians of the twentieth century. In terms of influence and recognition, she ranks with Winston Churchill, and remains probably the most important British leader for fifty years.

Iain is the author of one of the most seminal biographies on the late Prime Minister, draws on his own personal anecdotes of meeting and recording her memorable life and those who experienced a close encounter with the Iron Lady, among them: –

  • Ronald Reagan,

  • Mikhail Gorbachev,

  • Bob Hawke,

  • Boris Johnson,

  • Michael Howard,

  • William Hague,

  •  Ann Widdecombe,

  • Edwina Currie,

  • Alan Clark,

  • Norman Tebbit and

  • Geoffrey Howe, whose resignation speech in Parliament can be said to have brought to a dramatic end the Thatcher Era.
