There have been many books about Margaret Thatcher asnd Thatcherism, and no doubt there will be many more. Though this book contains new insights into both her life and the philosophy named after her, it is principally about neither. Its subject, instead, is the small group of about thirty individuals who the author identifies as the men who promoted and supported her - who they were and how they contributed to the formulation and implementation of the policies of the Thatcher years. Very rarely were they Cabinet ministers, instead they tended to be the backroom advisers, the long-standing friends', the men from non-political walks of life who she admired and the men who were prepared to effect the things she wanted. These people include Enoch Powell, Alfred Sherman, Norman Strauss, John Hoskyns, Ian Gow, Alan Walters and Nigel Lawson.
