Waterstones Says

Charles Moore’s monumental biography of Britain’s first female Prime Minister concludes with a meticulously researched and rounded account of Margaret Thatcher’s final years in office. Addressing both Thatcher’s iron will and political vulnerability, Herself Alone confirms Moore as one of our greatest living biographers.

Shortlisted for the Orwell Prize for Political Writing 2020

A BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week

The final part of Charles Moore's bestselling and definitive biography of Britain's first female Prime Minister, 'One of the great biographical achievements of our times' (Sunday Times)

How did Margaret Thatcher change and divide Britain? How did her model of combative female leadership help shape the way we live now? How did the woman who won the Cold War and three general elections in succession find herself pushed out by her own MPs?

Charles Moore's full account, based on unique access to Margaret Thatcher herself, her papers and her closest associates, tells the story of her last period in office, her combative retirement and the controversy that surrounded her even in death. It includes the Fall of the Berlin Wall which she had fought for and the rise of the modern EU which she feared. It lays bare her growing quarrels with colleagues and reveals the truth about her political assassination.

Moore's three-part biography of Britain's most important peacetime prime minister paints an intimate political and personal portrait of the victories and defeats, the iron will but surprising vulnerability of the woman who dominated in an age of male power. This is the full, enthralling story.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'One of the truly great biographies… this volume completes a historical masterpiece.' - The Saturday Times

'The chapter that covers her sensational fall from power as it is played out in the seven days of November 16-22 1990 represents an absolute masterpiece of the biographer’s art…Reviewers are supposed never to use the word 'definitive' about a history book or biography but with Charles Moore's life of Margaret Thatcher, one has no other option.' - The Daily Telegraph

“SUPERB - Like speaking to and living with Margaret Thatcher.”

This is one of the best biographies I have ever read.

The author gets under Thatcher’s skin as he guides us through her early years and the clear influence that her father and Methodist upbringing had on her. He... More
