Mrs Thatcher’s Religious Pilgrimage

Jeremy Seabrook & Trevor Blackwell

‘Mrs Thatcher's success is not only in her ability to plunder the chapel culture in which she was born - that fertile source of imagery and suasion - for she is also a story-teller to the nation, offering us easy and instant illustrations like those of the brightly coloured pop-up picture books of our childhood.’

Jeremy Seabrook

Jeremy Seabrook’s books include Consuming Cultures: Globalization and Local Lives, Cities, and most recently, The Refuge and the Fortress: Britain and the Flight from Tyranny 1933 - 2008. He is a contributor to The New Internationalist, Race and Class and the Guardian.
