The extraordinary account of Margaret Thatcher’s life up to her dramatic election as the first woman Prime Minister of England in 1979.


Margaret Thatcher was the towering figure of late-twentieth-century British politics. This is the story of her remarkable life in her own words.


In this second volume of her memoirs, following ‘The Downing Street Years’, she writes candidly about the experiences that propelled her to the very top in a man's world. Beginning with her upbringing in Grantham, she goes on to describe her Oxford years, marriage to Denis, and entry into Parliament at a time when there were no more than a handful of women MPs. Rising through the ranks to Education Secretary and then Leader of the Opposition, she led the Conservative Party to a historic victory in the 1979 general election, becoming Britain's first female prime minister.


Margaret Thatcher's compelling account stands as a powerful testament to her influential legacy.


Although ‘The Path to Power’ is not available as an ebook, the ebook ‘Margaret Thatcher: The Autobiography’ (ISBN 978-0-00-741694-3) comprises abridged versions of this and the second volume of Thatcher’s memoirs, ‘The Downing Street Years’.
