Charles Moore: Thatcher and the Cold War

ieaTV caught up with Margaret Thatcher’s authorised biographer Charles Moore to discuss the former Prime Minister’s approach to the Cold War. In this video, Moore describes how Margaret Thatcher provided a fresh approach to the conflict. She didn’t just it as a matter of inter-state relations, but was keen to highlight the implications of communism for the freedom of the people of eastern Europe. Moore explains how Thatcher’s approach utilised the idea of power through strength, and meant she was willing to meet dissidents.
