Front Cover
Algora Publishing, 2008 - Biography & Autobiography - 217 pages
This biography of Lady Thatcher relates in warm detail the life of Margaret Thatcher, her achievements as British Prime Minister, and her life since retirement. Written in a vigorous, no-nonsense style, Lady Thatcher provides a succinct portrait of the Iron Lady, illustrating what the terms OC ThatcheriteOCO and OC ThatcherismOCO really mean. Blundell shows why Thatcher was such an outstanding world leader and such an inspiration for women leaders in particular. The book begins with contrasting scenes OCo the desolation of Britain in the 1978-9 OC Winter of DiscontentOCO prior to Thatcher''s premiership, and the economic buoyancy and national self-confidence that prevailed by the end of her period in office 11 cents years later. The body of the text provides a chronological, strongly narrative treatment of ThatcherOCOs life, from childhood through to current times. John Blundell has been one of the most effective champions of the free- enterprise economic model which has delivered progress and prosperity around the world. Therefore he is very well placed to explain to Americans the beliefs and principles which underpinned what became known as Thatcherism. OCoLady Thatcher, Summer 2008."
