The first part of this show has Richard Reeves talking to Charlie Rose about a book he has written about Ronald Reagan. The liberal Left Reeves tells how he underestimated Reagan, and came to appreciate him as one of the great, or perhaps near- great American Presidents. According to Reeves Reagan was a fantasizer, a man of a few ideas who shaped the future in accordance with his vision. He restored Americans to faith in themselves and their country, and he made the deal which won the Cold War, brought down the Iron Curtain. Reeves says Reagan was a true leader who knew how to delegate work to others, and who took the big decisions himself.
I got a special charge at one point in this interview when Reeves mentions Gorbachev's visit to Washington. Gorbachev got out of his limousine to shake peoples' hands. Reeves then mentions that the Washington restauranteur Duke Zeibert began shouting to Gorbachev "Come in. We've got borscht" An admittedly insignificant detail but one I greatly enjoyed as the Duke ,Dave Zeibert, a great American character, was my uncle.
The Judt segment has him talking about his book on PostWar Europe. He speaks about the European problem today with its non- integrated marginal minorities. In the course of this he completely ignores the demographic and Islamist terror threats these minorities are perceived by many Europeans as presenting. Charlie Rose is here his usual sympathetic self, but this is one time he could have been more critical. Judt is interesting in explaining the way the Marshall plan revived Europe , saying it was not primarily the money but the confidence of the American government in Europe which marked the turnaround. Judt also considers where Europe is today and says it has no great unifying leader.
