Baillie Gifford Big Tent
The final volume of one the greatest political biographies ever written.
Full of revelations, gossip and controversy the political writer and journalist, Charles Moore completes his award-winning three-part biography of Britain’s first female Prime Minister. The series reaches its climax covering the period from the former Prime Minister’s third election victory in 1987 to her death, telling the full enthralling story of her zenith and fall. It paints an intimate political and personal portrait of the victories and the defeats, the iron will but surprise vulnerability of the woman who dominated in an age of male power.
Charles Moore was political correspondent on the Daily Telegraph, covering many years of Margaret Thatcher’s governments. He was Editor of the Spectator and Sunday Telegraph.
‘One of the greatest biographical achievements of our times.’
