Overview

This volume is a collection of pamphlets prepared over the years by the London thinktank which laid the foundation for the policies of Margaret Thatcher, and charted the course for the domestic and international policies of Great Britain over the years, in the longest tenure as prime minister of this century. Various pamphlets address in depth a broad range of key issues from privitisation, to new thoughts on the welfare state, to education. This compilation provides perhaps the most comprehensive and thorough exploration of Thatcher's policies available, as it is the product of those who developed them and understand them best, explaining how the ideas of the free market are combined with those of social responsibility. Such information is invaluable to anyone interested in gaining a genuine understanding of the inner workings of Great Britain and its role in the world today. Co-published with the Centre for Policy Studies.
