Even in death, Britain's "Iron Lady," Margaret Thatcher, divides and polarizes.

Victor Bailey, Distinguished Professor of Modern British History at the University of Kansas, examines Thatcher's political career, from leader of the Conservative Party to becoming the first female and longest-serving Prime Minister of the last century.

Looking at her efforts to transform an ailing economy, roll back the frontiers of the state, and bring trade unionism within the rule of law, Bailey asks: What was Thatcherism? Was it good or bad for Britain? And how will Margaret Thatcher be rated as prime minister?
