Summary "In Statecraft Margaret Thatcher brings her unrivalled political experience to bear on the challenges of the new millennium. Reflecting on the lessons of the Cold War, she describes the foundations of American dominance and discusses its continuing role. She weighs in the balance the various fortunes of Russia, China, India and the Far East. She analyses the dangers posed by Balkan instability, rogue states, Islamic extremism and international terrorism - and suggests strategies to counter them. She also warns of the insidious extension of the power of international institutions at the expense of nation states. On the same theme, she explains from first-hand experience the tensions that characterise Britain's relations with Europe and examines in clear terms the options now available."--BOOK JACKET
