'A vivid and compelling first-hand account of Margaret Thatcher's diplomacy' Henry Kissinger 'An insider's account of Thatcher the stateswoman... a book she would have loved to have seen published' The Times 'Plenty of good stories... lively and enjoyable' Daily Telegraph 'Brings back many fond memories!' General Colin Powell 'Particularly interesting is the material on the Falklands War, suggesting Mrs Thatcher's attitude to war was more complex than often imagined.' Choice Magazine 'Will be read by many people with very great pleasure.' Sir John Major 'Lord Renwick [gives] ... absorbing accounts of the negotiations he himself was involved in... Renwick tell[s] the story of the Falklands in brilliantly nuanced detail - Nobody who reads these pages could ever think of Margaret Thatcher as heartless.' Ferdinand Mount, TLS 'If you want an engaging whistlestop tour of Margaret Thatcher's foreign policy, then this book hits the spot - The beauty about Renwick's book is that it gives context to Thatcher's foreign policy.' Total Politics 'Full of delicious insider detail' Financial Times 'In A Journey With Margaret Thatcher - Foreign Policy Under The Iron Lady Renwick provides an insightful first-hand account of the British prime minister's bare-knuckled approach to international diplomacy - Yet, as this illuminating memoir concludes, this opinionated, uncompromising and at times unnecessarily abrasive woman made a much greater impact on world affairs than any other post-war British prime minister.' Financial Mail '[It] sparkles with personal anecdotes.' Richard Ottoway MP
