    I believe I have a better overall understanding of the woman and her impact on politics since reading this book, but I felt that the book assumed a certain degree of prior knowledge, which I didn t have For example, it talked about Black Monday and about closed ballots without any further explanation of what this meant, which was frustrating Toward the end, there was a heavy emphasis on economics, which I also struggled with A reasonable introduction for me, but I feel asimplified versi I believe I have a better overall understanding of the woman and her impact on politics since reading this book, but I felt that the book assumed a certain degree of prior knowledge, which I didn t have For example, it talked about Black Monday and about closed ballots without any further explanation of what this meant, which was frustrating Toward the end, there was a heavy emphasis on economics, which I also struggled with A reasonable introduction for me, but I feel asimplified version would be useful for newcomers to the subject

    It s mostly pictures almost like reading a comic book version of spitting image but less funny andinformative 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 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 the employment of Gordon Reece and the Saatchi Brothers, which would become vital in the bid to rebrand her image, making herappealing to the electorate Monetarism, privatisation, the Falklands and the Poll Tax are all in here too.According to this book, during the 80s there were no less than 28 revisions to the way unemployment figures were measured I wonder why Anyone would think that the government had something they wanted to hide In May 79 the month when Thatcher came to power , there were 1.09 million registered unemployed, this would rise to a high of 3.13 million in July 86, before declining again years later The facts reflect that Thatcher excelled in making a lot of rich people richer and a lot of poor people poorer Despite being hugely unpopular and damaging to large areas of the country, some of her policies were necessary, without doubt the unions were getting too strong, greedy and bloated in power and needed reigning in though not to the extent Thatcher did They enjoyed a disproportionate amount of power in a so called democracy, and spent a lot of time, money and effort fighting for dying industries to the detriment of other areas The likes of the coal industry which had been in chronic decline for years and British Steel, losing an alleged 30 a second To keep such drains on the coffers open, would be reckless to the point of madness What could have and should have been handled a lot better, was the treatment of the people and communities that these decisions deeply effected and often devastated By not taking the proper steps to help and alleviate those most damaged by the changes, they greatly failed in their responsibilities, which only made a grim situation worse.So overall this is a stimulating and thought provoking overview of Thatcherism, that manages to maintain a relatively balanced perspective, which isn t always easy to do when writing about Thatcher It covers most of the main points and is written in a largely accessible way It says in the biographies section, that Flint is an eighties throwback This is certainly reflected in his art work, it harks back to the gritty, left wing, political cartoon drawing of the 80s, that may not be for everyone, but it does help capture the era it covers really well
