Product description

Synopsis

Lady Thatcher, a unique figure in global politics, shares her views about the dangers and opportunities of the new millennium. In her own words: "I wanted to write one more book and I wanted it to be about the future. In this age of spin-doctors and soundbites, the ever present danger is that leaders will follow fashion and not their instincts and beliefs. That was not how the West won the Cold War, not how we created the basis for today's freedom and prosperity. If we wish to make our achievements secure for our children and grandchildren, the West must stay vigilant and strong. In this book it will be my purpose to show that it can - and must - be done."

From the Back Cover

"I want to write one more book – and I wanted it to be about the future. In this age of spin-doctors and sound bites, the ever-present danger is that leaders will follow fashion and not their instinct and beliefs. That was not how the West won the Cold War, nor how we wish to make our achievements secure for our children and grandchildren, the West must stay vigilant and strong. In this book it will be my purpose to show how that can – and must – be done."

In 'Statecraft' Margaret Thatcher brings her unrivalled political experience to bear on the challenges of the new millennium. Reflecting on the lessons of the Cold War, she describes the foundations of American dominance and discusses its continuing role. She weighs in the balance the various fortunes of Russia, China, India and the Far East, She analyses the dangers posed by Balkan instability, rogue states, Islamic extremism and international terrorism – and suggests strategies and international terrorism – and suggests strategies to counter them. She also warns of the insidious extension of the power of international institutions at the expense of nation states. On the same themes, she explains from first-hand experience the tensions that characterise in clear terms the options now available.

Statescraft is a powerful treatise delivered by a world figure with a unique combination of principle and shrewdness.
