Statecraft, signed by the author Strategies for a Changing World
London: Harper Collins Publishers, 2002. First edition. Hardcover. This is the first edition, signed by the author. The author's signature is inked in blue directly below her printed name on the title page (not on a book plate, as more commonly found). We conservatively grade condition as near fine in a near fine dust jacket. The binding is square, tight, and clean with a tiny bump to the upper front corner. The contents are crisp and bright with no spotting or previous ownership marks. “FIRST EDITION” is so stated on the title page verso. The dust jacket is clean, bright, and complete, with the publisher's original price intact on the upper front flap. We note only trivial wrinkling to the upper front corner spine head. The dust jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. Margaret Hilda Thatcher (1925-2013), Baroness Thatcher, was Great Britain's longest serving Prime Minister of the twentieth century (1979-1990) and the first woman to hold the office. Thatcher led her Conservative Party from 1975 to 1990. It was her implacable opposition to Soviet global ambitions that led Soviet media to dub her “The Iron Lady”. The nickname pleased Thatcher and stuck, popularizing her uncompromising leadership style and initiatives which spanned aggressive deregulation and privatization of the British economy to war in the Falklands. After her 1992 retirement from the House of Commons, Thatcher was given a life peerage, entitling her to sit in the House of Lords. Thatcher's Statecraft was published in 2002. From an original review: "A collection of widely differing global essays ranging from the Cold War to Russia, from international terrorism to Europe and from Islamic fundamentalism to capitalism, all woven together within the theme of the military, political, and economic challenges of the 21st century... In the end, Statecraft leaves you feeling that Thatcher is very like her beloved America - annoying, brash, over-confident, full-on, frequently simplistic, often wrong, more usually right and, overall, a force for good."
