    One thought on “Reagan and Thatcher: The Difficult Relationship”

    1. Richard Aldous gets behind the popular image of the steadfast political couple that were Ronald Reagan, to date the last of America s greatest presidents, and Margaret Thatcher, to date the last of Britain s greatest prime ministers, to expose their often contentious relationship Thatcher was always quick to lecture Reagan as a teacher might an errant pupil, and Reagan always let her rant because he knew who, at the end of the day, held the paddle Yet the two together, like Roosevelt and Churchi [...]

    2. Reading a book about Reagan and Thatcher does not imply endorsement any than reading Mein Kampf implies you re an exponent of neo Nazism.A high rating doesn t mean I m an exponent of their policies or obsessed with their political persona But this was a good book Well written, comprehensive and deeply insightful Would recommend it to anyone interested in Reaganism and Thatcherism obviously but also to people who are interested in transatlantic relations and the Cold War.It basically explores th [...]

    3. Occasionally I wished he d had another 100 pages to go into a little depth, but that probably wasn t necessary This is a crisply written overview of US British relations during the most pivotal events of the 80s, and it s supported with lots of quotes and footnotes, so it s both enjoyable to read and well documented Having grown up in a household where it was a given that Reagan could do no right, it was interesting to read about the philosophies and motivations behind his and Thatcher s intern [...]

    4. A highly engaging account of the decade the 80s that changed the world s geopolitical order, from the perspective of the two most influential world leaders of the time, whose culture, vision and determination crucially affected such changes.Very informative, it really compelled me with the thorough and intelligently organized account of the interactions between Thatcher and Reagan and their respective entourages occurring behind the scenes that determined the way some of the most relevant events [...]

    5. Incredibly amazing read It clearly showed a couple of events that demonstrated the close relationship between Thatcher and Reagan.I would have loved to meet Margaret Thatcher in person, the maiden iron lady Best quote was, Nations do not have permanent friends and allies, they have permanent interests

    6. Really enjoyed this book It gave an insight into a relationship that politically was one of the most significant in the 20th century I always thought that Reagan and Thatcher had sung from the same hymn sheet during their terms in office This book highlights the various times they were at loggerheads and is a must read for anyone interested in the life of either Thatcher or Reagan.

    7. A good read I was a recent college graduate in this era, and one cannot overstate the cold war tensions It is a fascinating view into the real Thatcher Reagan relationship, which was apparently much contentious than the popular media would have us believe, but a strong team nevertheless Good job bringing that reality to light.

    8. I have avoided Thatcher books, to prevent anger getting the better of me But for some reason this book in my favourite second hand shop told me to buy it.Provides fascinating insight into key events of their rule Well worth reading, even if you vehemently disagree with their politics.

    9. Interesting account of a relationship I always thought of as very friendly and than amicable Great read but short The author could have added some depth to the book without loosing the overall flow.

    10. This was an ok read It didn t flow as well but I remember well some of the events that are covered in this book.

    11. Excellent book that highlights the challenges these incredible diplomats had at the peak of the Cold War.
