I've waiting for a good review of the Thatcher years for some time - and this is a good survey. Vinen considers whether there really was such a thing as "Thatcherism" - and decides there wasn't. He is good on Thatcher's response to Europe and of course on the conflict with the trades unions generally and the miners in particular. For those of us were there its a good and clear sighted review of both the causes of Thatcher's policies and their effects ( )
