Truman, Jenkins, Roy
6 Jenkins, Roy Truman
London, United Kingdom Macmillan U.K. 1995 0333619978 / 9780333619971 Soft cover Fine Book 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
No marks or inscriptions. Illustrated. This scarce biography of Harry S. Truman provides a reassessment of the American President whose reputation, it asserts, has risen since he left office. Roy Jenkins shows that the Truman presidency (1945-1953) built the structures within which the Western world has lived since World War II. The Marshall Plan promoted not only the recovery, but the unity of Western Europe; NATO enabled this prosperity to grow within a framework of security. Truman's decisions - for all his private indiscretions and occasional muddles - were firm and level-headed, guiding the Western world through the many dangers of the unstable post-war years. Nice and clean internally and externally.

Below the Parapet, Thatcher, Carol
10 Thatcher, Carol Below the Parapet
London Harper Collins 1996 0002556057 / 9780002556057 First Edition Very Good Very Good Book 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Clipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. Neat gift inscription. What was it like for Denis, how did he do it? are the most frequently asked questions of Denis Thatcher. He considered his job as an exercise in love and loyalty, but what was the real story behind the first blind date with 24-year-old Margaret Roberts, the early electioneering and the truama of the Falklands War? What was the truth about the bombing at the Grand Hotel, Brighton, and the inside story of the leadership contest that finally forced the Thatchers from Downing Street? Denis Thatcher was his wife's eyes and ears to the world, yet he remains a deeply private man. Only his daughter, Carol, who shared these extraordinary years at No.10, can reveal the true picture of this absorbing character and, in telling his story, offer a fascinating perspective on the Thatcher years as seen from the inside. First edition means first edition, first printing, unless otherwise clearly stated.

Statecraft Strategies for a Changing World, Thatcher, Margaret
11 Thatcher, Margaret Statecraft Strategies for a Changing World
London Harper Collins 2003 0007150644 / 9780007150649 First Edition Soft cover Very Good Book 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Signed by Author(s)
2nd impression. SIGNED ON TITLEPAGE BY AUTHOR. Margaret Thatcher brings her unrivalled political experience to bear on the challenges of the new millennium. Lady Thatcher's previous books on her political career have been bestsellers: The Downing Street Years went to No.1. She is a unique world figure and this book, containing her views about the dangers and opportunities of the new millennium, has attracted great interest both in Britain and around the world. In her own words: I wanted to write one more book -- and I wanted it to be about the future. In this age of spin-doctors and sound bites, the ever present danger is that leaders will follow fashion and not their instincts and beliefs. That was not how the West won the Cold War, not how we created the basis for today's freedom and prosperity. If we wish to make our achievements secure for our children and grandchildren, the West must stay vigilant and strong. In this book it will be my purpose to show that it can -- and must- be done. First edition means first edition, first printing, unless otherwise clearly stated.
