Editorial Reviews


No Reagan biographer or scholar knows Ronald Reagan and conservatism like Paul Kengor. If you want to know what's really meant by 'Reagan conservatism, ' Paul Kengor is the guy and this is the book. -- Michael Reagan

Paul Kengor has done a great job and great service capturing the essence of Reagan's economic ideals. As someone involved with Reaganomics, and particularly tax cuts, I am especially pleased with Kengor's treatment of the subject. We need to properly understand what happened under Ronald Reagan in the 1980s--most notably, the enduring value of his tax cuts, which were a cornerstone of Reagan conservatism. This book gets it right. Nicely done. -- Dr. Arthur B. Laffer, the founder and chairman of Laffer Associates, an economic research firm

Dr. Paul Kengor's work on Reagan continues the great president's legacy wish to teach, as well as lead. Kengor's keen analysis of Reagan's conservatism will inform and inspire the next generation of conservative leaders as they take up the mantle of the sacred realities that so inspired the Gipper. Respect for individual, adherence to the virtues of the family, lower taxes and a less burdensome government are the values that Reagan fought for, and the standards that should direct the path of his acolytes that follow. Dr. Kengor has proven he is one of those acolytes who will ensure that the legacy of Reagan never dims. -- Senator Rand Paul, (R-KY)

A clear, concise outline of President Reagan's approach to politics -- and a roadmap to victory for today's conservatives. -- Herb Meyer, Special Assistant to the Director of Central Intelligence and Vice Chairman of the CIA's National Intelligence Council during the Reagan Administration

Ronald Reagan presents the rare combination of forward-looking with a back-to-basics foundation. No one captures Reagan's practice better than Paul Kengor, and his latest effort is an indispensable guide for everyone who wishes to extend the Reagan legacy for the next generation. -- Steven Hayward, author The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Presidents: From Wilson to Obama (Politically Incorrect Guides)

Few writers have studied and written about Ronald Reagan more comprehensively than Dr. Paul Kengor. None offers a clearer view of the personal compass (core beliefs) that guided Reagan the man, the conservative leader and, the most successful President in modern history. In 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative, Kengor spells out the timeless tenets that made Reagan unique in his time, and that can also revive our spirit, enlighten and inspire our people, and restore our purpose to rebuild a strong America for our future. -- Bently Elliott, former director of White House speechwriting under President Reagan

After eight years with Ronald Reagan as his chief speechwriter, I can say without hesitation that Paul Kengor -- far better than most current historians or journalists -- understands the Reagan heart and mind. Mr. Kengor's research is prodigious, his analysis keen and insightful, his writing clear and his work distinguished. His command of the Reagan legacy is incomparable. -- Tony Dolan, chief speechwriter and Special Assistant and Deputy Assistant to President Reagan

It's really a handy volume for the young people who won't read longer ones. Paul Kengor reminds us of the building blocks of successful modern conservatism. He adds and multiplies to bring us back together with Ronald Reagan's basic principles that are unifying for all of us. Paul Kengor reminds us of what ties us together. His discussion of Ronald Reagan's principles will inspire future generations to come together and promote a true conservative future. Kengor is a noted authority on Ronald Reagan. This slim volume distills the principles of Reagan for future generations to learn and apply for rebuilding a free society. -- Ed Feulner, retired President of The Heritage Foundation

There are few historians who are closer students of the Reagan message, his thoughts, his utterances, and his convictions than Paul Kengor. In this primer of Reagan principles, Kengor offers us the heart of the Reagan vision. -- Bill Bennett, Former U.S. Secretary of Education; host of the nationally syndicated radio show Morning in America

What is a Reagan conservative? That's a question that I, as a Reagan conservative and a Reagan biographer, get asked frequently. It's also a question that few self-described conservatives truly understand. And yet, with all the books on Ronald Reagan, this is the first to undertake an answer. Paul Kengor, himself a Reagan conservative, lays out 11 principles of Reagan conservatism. This book couldn't be more timely and more needed as conservatives look desperately for the next generation of genuine Reagan conservatives. -- Craig Shirley, Reagan biographer and New York Times bestselling author
