Product Description

Tatcher and friends challenges current assumptions about the popularity of the Conservatrice Party. TheTories are, it argues in long term decline. Every victory since 1931 has seen the Tory vote at a lower level than the one before and 1983 was no exception. Thatcher and Friends explains why. It provides an important anatomy of the Tory Party - who finances, supports and runs it - and charts its fortunes from the mid-nineteenth century to the ascendency of Margaret Thatcher. It shows that Thatcherism, the crisis of the Labour Party and the rise of the SDP-Liberal Alliance are all part of the break-up of the traditional British political system.
