April 9, 2013, Pune, India: BookChums expresses condolences on the death of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher who passed away yesterday. She was 87. Thatcher was the only female PM Britain ever had and the longest serving one: she held office from 1979 to 1990.
Referred to as the ‘Iron Lady’ for her resolute stand on issues and leadership skills, Thatcher’s tenure was anything but uneventful. The 1982 Falklands War and the economic recovery led to her reelection in 1983. She was reelected in 1987, but opposition to some of her decisions forced her to resign from her post as party leader and PM in 1990.
Many books have tried to unravel the person that Thatcher was, but who better the lady herself - her book The Downing Street Years will now be much sought after. Also worth reading is Women in Power, the book that profiles three women leaders including Thatcher and Indira Gandhi.
