Editorial Reviews

Review

'Meg Jacobs and Julian Zelizer have brought together a wide-ranging and impressive set of documents dealing with the 'Reagan Revolution.' They offer a fascinating and compulsively readable introduction to a key moment in recent American history, one that will provoke students to reflect more deeply about the important connections between the past and the present.' - Jason Scott Smith, University of New Mexico

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this book as a History class resource. Includes primary sources and its not literature or a nice reading for a non Academic person.

The book is all about Reagan including some of his personal life but not too much about politics.

It's OK for the classroom but NOT for a casual reader.

insightful book about the inner politics during Reagan adm. I think what john Anderson said if you increase defense spending ,lower taxes and try to balance the budget at the same time .impossible. also what lee Atwater said in a speech was pertinent about gender gap in the republican party and still is. another intriguing fact was Robert bork and why he was rejected as a supreme ct,bork put his allegiance to a corrupt president not the constitution
