Description

This first volume of Margaret Thatcher’s memoirs, which encompasses the entirety of her career as Prime Minister.

Margaret Thatcher was the towering figure of late-twentieth-century British politics. This is the story of her remarkable life in her own words.

This first volume of her memoirs is a riveting first-hand portrait of the events and personalities of her eleven years in power. She recalls the triumphs and the critical moments of her premiership – the Falklands War, the miners’ strike, the Brighton bomb, the Westland Affair and her unprecedented three election victories. Her judgements of the men and women she encountered, whether world statesmen or Cabinet colleagues, are astonishingly frank. She is lavish with her praise; devastating with her criticism. The book reaches a gripping climax with an hour-by-hour description from inside 10 Downing Street of her dramatic final days in office.

Margaret Thatcher’s compelling account stands as a powerful testament to her influential legacy.

Although ‘The Downing Street Years’ is not available as an ebook, the ebook ‘Margaret Thatcher: The Autobiography’ (ISBN 978-0-00-741694-3) comprises abridged versions of this and the first volume of Thatcher’s memoirs, ‘The Path to Power’.

About the Author

In 1979 Margaret Thatcher became the first woman British Prime Minister. A decade later she became the first premier for 160 years to win three consecutive general elections. In 1990 she resigned her leadership of an increasingly divided and turbulent government. She is the only PM to have given her name to a branch of political philosophy, and arguably the most important figure in postwar British politics.
