Young's probing political biography reveals how Thatcher changed the face o f the Conservative Party in a series of "mighty battles" with the old guard , tamed the trade unions, controlled inflation and unemployment and, by her conduct of the Falkland War and her dealings with Reagan and Gorbachev, em erged as a global leader. Reviewing her tenure as a combative, pragmatic pr ime minister with a driving sense of mission, Young, a journalist for the G uardian in England, concludes that Thatcher has displayed the virtues and v ices of "a ruthless crusading leader who knew she was right and had the sup reme duty to remain in power." Her accomplishments have been extraordinary and yet, as Young points out, there is scant evidence that her countrymen l ike her, let alone love her (she does not seem to like them either, he adds ). And she has demonstrated that a political leader needn't be popular to b e effective.
