Keynes Hayek : the clash that defined modern economics by Nicholas Wapshott ( Book )
19 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As the stock market crash of 1929 plunged the world into turmoil, two men emerged with competing claims on how to restore balance to economies gone awry. John Maynard Keynes, the mercurial Cambridge economist, believed that government had a duty to spend when others would not. He met his opposite in a little-known Austrian economics professor, Friedrich Hayek, who considered attempts to intervene both pointless and potentially dangerous. The battle lines thus drawn, Keynesian economics would dominate for decades and coincide with an era of unprecedented prosperity, but conservative economists and political leaders would eventually embrace and execute Hayek's contrary vision. From their first face-to-face encounter to the heated arguments between their ardent disciples, Nicholas Wapshott here unearths the contemporary relevance of Keynes and Hayek, as present-day arguments over the virtues of the free market and government intervention rage with the same ferocity as they did in the 1930s.--Publisher description
Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher : a political marriage by Nicholas Wapshott ( Book )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A character study of the most important Anglo-American friendship since FDR and Churchill. During their eight overlapping years in office, President Reagan and Prime Minister Thatcher worked together to promote lower taxes, deregulation, free trade, and an aggressive stance against the Soviet Union. But according to journalist Wapshott, the relationship was much deeper than an alliance of mutual interests. Drawing on interviews and recently declassified documents, Wapshott depicts a more complex, personal, and sometimes argumentative relationship than has previously been revealed. Reagan, the son of the town drunk, used his genial charm to win over his enemies and always focused on the big picture rather than details. Thatcher, the daughter of a strict middle-class shopkeeper, was a hard worker and master of details who would rather be respected than liked. Yet from their very first meeting in 1975, they recognized each other as political soulmates, committed not just to conservative principles but to getting things done.--From publisher description

Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher [a political marriage] by Nicholas Wapshott ( Recording )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The bond between Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher was far more than a pragmatic pact to defeat a common enemy. It was an ideological marriage, a true meeting of minds. It was all the more remarkable because it was so formidable, a partnership that would radically change the political landscapes in their own countries as well as alter the course of world history. This is a nuanced and immensely readable portrait of how Reagan and Thatcher resolved their differences in leading the world out of incipient chaos
