15 Aug 2017, 18:45 - 19:45
- Baillie Gifford Main Theatre, Edinburgh International Book Festival
The British Academy event at Edinburgh International Book Festival:
Hands up those who are completely unbiased about Margaret Thatcher? We thought not. Which is why it’s a pleasure to welcome eminent historian Sir David Cannadine, Dodge Professor of History at Princeton, whose Margaret Thatcher: A Life and Legacy, is probably the most even-handed study of her yet – and at a mere 144 pages, probably the pithiest too.
Professor Sir David Cannadine FBA Dodge Professor of History, Princeton University; Editor, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography; Visiting Professor, University of Oxford
