Publishing to coincide with Meryl Streep's performance as one of the most infamous figures in postwar politics. Whether you love her or hate her, Margaret Thatcher's impact on twentieth-century history is undeniable.

The result of more than nine years of meticulous research, The Iron Ladyis the only balanced, unvarnished portrait of one of the most politically vital and controversial figures of our time.
