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.
John Campbell is a leading political biographer. His other books include Lloyd George, Pistols at Dawn: Two Hundred Years of Political Rivalry from Pitt and Fox to Blair and Brown, and Edward Heath, for which he won the NCR Book Award. He lives in England.
