January 13th, 2016

WHO: Margaret Thatcher

WHAT: Volume II of her authorized biography:
MARGARET THATCHER: At Her Zenith: In London, Washington and Moscow by Charles Moore

WHEN: Published by Knopf January 5, 2016

WHERE: Set in Great Britain.

WHY: “Monumental.
“In this comprehensive study, Moore focuses on the period between 1982 and 1987, during which Thatcher was reelected not just once but twice. Using the abundant and illuminating sources he had full access to, including government and personal papers, private diaries, personal notes, and so much more, Moore creates a carefully detailed portrait of a leader he characterizes as ‘more famous on the world stage than any British prime minister except for Sir Winston Churchill.’
“With admirers and detractors galore, Thatcher was a lightning rod in the realm of British and international politics, and both groups will find much to appreciate here. A chronology of world events, copious notes, and an extensive bibliography enhance an exhaustive narrative that will fascinate students of contemporary British history and politics.” —Carolyn Mulac, BOOKLIST

“Surprisingly evenhanded.
Readers inclined to be as fair-minded as Moore will find much of interest in this account of her years in power.” —KIRKUS, a starred review
