About this product
- DescriptionThumb through the index of almost any study of the Thatcher years - biographical, scholarly or journalistic - and you will come across the name of Sir Alfred Sherman. In her memoirs Lady Thatcher herself pays tribute to Sherman's 'brilliance', the 'force and clarity of his mind', his 'breadth of reading and his skills as a ruthless polemicist'. She credits him with a central role in her achievements, especially as Leader of the Opposition but also after she became Prime Minister. Sherman examines the origins and development of 'Thatcherism', but concludes that the Conservative administrations of the 1980s were, for the most part, an 'interlude' and that the post-war consensus remains largely unscathed - 'we are back to where we started'.
- Author BiographySir Alfred Sherman was born in 1919 in London's East End. Until 1948 he was a Communist and fought in the Spanish Civil War, but he has ended up an indefatigable free-market crusader.
