To understand what’s happening in the world now, we need to understand then.

Few relationships change the course of history. That between Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan did.

Charles Moore, author of the definitive biography of Margaret Thatcher, reveals how she, as UK Prime Minister, and US President Ronald Reagan came to enjoy much more than a political alliance. Forged in adversity, it was a close friendship built on ideological affinity and strong mutual attraction. Though their relationship was often tested, Charles Moore will make the case that it changed the course of history, as together they helped reshape East/West relations, driving the Cold War towards a peaceful conclusion.
