A crisply organized, well-paced, and intimate look at the life of the first woman ever to hold the office of prime minister of Great Britain. In quick, sure strokes, Hole paints a portrait of Thatcher as a thoughtful, round-faced, blue-eyed child who was considered "bright, studious, serious even as a five year old." Woven into the portrait are the multiple threads of Thatcher's private life, laid out against a picture of her years as a prime minister faced with national strikes, the Falklands war, massive unemployment, race riots, terrorist bombings, troubles in northern Ireland, and more. Hole's depiction of Thatcher's life is well presented. Black-and-white photographs of fairly good quality appear throughout. --Louise M. Zuckerman, formerly at San Francisco Public Library
