A Margaret Thatcher reading list

Ten to get you in the mood.

We've devoted much of the current issue of the New Statesman to the anniversary of Margaret Thatcher's departure from Downing Street, 20 years ago this month.

As a taster, here's the pick of the coverage when we last marked a Thatcher anniversary – in that instance, 30 years since she came to power:

1. Maggie's Men: her first cabinet in 1979

2. Maggie's playlist: the soundtrack to a decade of dissent

3. Mrs T's rogues' gallery

4. Au revoir, never goodbye by Dominic Sandbrook

5. The shadows of shadows: playing Maggie

6. The stalking horse: Anthony Meyer

7. The unforgiven by Paul Routledge

8. The view from the Press Gallery

9. I was a teenage Tory boy by Harry Mount

10. Where were you when you heard she was going?
