"With a remarkable blending of historical knowledge and intellectual excitement, political journalist Peter Jenkins examines [the phenomenal success story of Thatcherism], making clear that the time was ripe for Mrs. Thatcher to proclaim that 'conviction' rather than 'consensus' politics in combination with revived Victorian values could cure Britain's ills. This book tells a story of great importance for contemporary history: the decline and apparent death of socialism in a nation in which the labour movement has played a dominant role. Jenkins shows how the failure of postwar policies, based on the concept of a welfare state, prepared the ground for Mrs. Thatcher's radical solution to the nation's growing economic and social problems."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
