Maggie is John Sergeant's mordant analysis of Thatcher's life and career, bringing to bear his trademark wit and keen sense of the absurd, but also his deep understanding of the British political arena and an insight born of 30 years of reporting on events in Westminster. His access to those who worked for her, with her, and against her is unique. This riveting book offers both a fresh appraisal of a woman who changed British politics forever and a powerful account of her legacy and her political heirs, be they new Labour or Ian Duncan Smith.
"[Sergeant's] anecdotes and apercus are to the point...the cumulative effect is devastating." ( Sunday Times)
