A Margaret Thatcher reading list

Ten to get you in the mood.

By Jon Bernstein

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
