بدون شک صحبت از سیاستمداری که امروزه نامش با یک «ایسم/ایست» همراه است و طرفداران و مخالفین جدی در جهان دارد و مشی و تفکراتش ، که خود وامگرفته از افراد بسیاری است، موجب تحولات شگرفی درسراسر دنیا شد کاری است بس دشوار و نیاز به بحث و گفتگوی فراوان دارد.

ویژگی کتاب:
بیطرفی، ذکر بد و خوب دولت تاچر، ایجاز، نداشتن انسجام در مطالب، تیتروار گذاشتن از رویدادها و...

It's mostly pictures almost like reading a comic book version of spitting image but less funny and more informative. Good if you want to dip your foot into the Thatcher Pool instead of going head first.

This is a detailed and compact little guide that does cram plenty of facts and stats into its modest size. As well as giving us some nice background and build up to the Thatcher years, allowing us a longer view, showing us many of the factors and people who would influence Thatcher, the likes of Hayek, Friedman and Alfred Sherman. We also learn of the importance of Keith Joseph, the IEA (Institute of Economic Affairs) and the CPS (Centre Policy Studies) on emerging Thatcherism. It also mentions
