Thatcher and Thatcherism

Evans, Eric J., 1945- author

This revised, expanded and updated fourth edition of 'Thatcher and Thatcherism' examines the origins and impact of 'Thatcherism' both as a cultural construct and an economic creed from the 1970s to the formation of a coalition government in 2010. New to this edition is an extended exploration of Thatcher's impact outside of the UK, as well as an examination of the assessments published following her death in 2013, providing students with a greater understanding of the legacy of Thatcherism within the modern political landscape
