Mary Warnock reflects on her involvement in the philosophical world of Oxford during its heyday in the fifties and sixties and on her life as a major, yet controversial, player in British politics. When Margaret Thatcher made her Chairman of the highly charged Enquiry into Human Fertilization, Mary entered the public spotlight. Her potent dislike of areas of British society, as well as her trenchant criticism of the changing nature of the educational system under Thatcher, give this book a unique insider's edge.
