La jaquette indique : "A la fois aimée et rejetée, Margaret Thatcher fut la première et l'unique femme Premier Ministre du Royaume Uni. Si son style abrasif a suscité les révoltes les plus vives, elle a réussi à se faire respecter en abolissant toutes les barrières liées à son sexe et à son rang. De l'épicerie familiale à l'arrivée au 10 Downing Street, de succès en échecs politiques, de sacrifices consentis en trahisons subies, le destin exceptionnel de La Dame de Fer raconte l'histoire du pouvoir et du prix à payer pour l'obtenir. Une histoire à la fois unique et universelle."
