Margaret Thatcher was the longest-serving Prime Minister of the 20th century and one of the most influential figures of the postwar era. Volume two of Moore's acclaimed biography covers the central, triumphal years of her premiership, from the Falklands to the 1987 election. Based on unrestricted access to all Lady Thatcher's papers, unpublished interviews with her and all her major colleagues, this is the indispensable portrait of a towering figure of our times.

This is a revealing study of Thatcher in the years 1982 to 1987. Moore sums up, “Mrs Thatcher was the most effective promoter of European integration Britain has ever known.” He notes that she later admitted “that she had been wrong to sign the SEA because it had pushed on to the European Union which she feared.” She put market before country.
