Great Britain in the 1970s appeared to a nation be in terminal decline – ungovernable and rapidly headed for global economic irrelevance. Three decades later, it is one of the richest and most influential countries in Europe and Margaret Thatcher deserves all the credit. There Is No Alternative provides a valuable account of Margaret Thatcher’s visionary triumphs in the fight for free enterprise.
As journalist and conservative pundit Claire Berlinski shows, Thatcher’s transformation of Britain was no simple task. Her jarring economic reforms often came at a high human cost as inefficient subsidies, welfare programs, and industries were abandoned entirely. While Thatcher’s legacy has been the subject of passionate debate, Berlinski argues that we should be on her side. Socialism is on the rise and only countries willing to abide by Thatcher’s philosophy will prevail.
Claire Berlinski holds a doctorate in international relations from Balliol College at Oxford University. Her work has appeared in numerous publications, including the New York Times, Washington Post, New York Sun, National Review, and many others. She lives in Istanbul.
