    While there has been intense focus on Margaret Thatcher as a personality, what her government actually did is often overlooked now. In telling the story of Thatcherism (rather than Thatcher), Vinen begins before 1979, with a discussion of Enoch Powell and the Conservative Party in opposition; he deals in detail with the events of Thatcher's term in office, notably the Falklands War and the Miners' Strike; and he pays particular attention to the ministers in the Thatcher government.
