From the Publisher:
A reevaluation of the late fortieth president argues that his accomplishments were marginalized by liberal biases and places Reagan among the nation's greatest leaders, offering insight into the more sophisticated endeavors of his presidency while discussing such topics as his negotiations with Gorbachev, his opposition to foreign interventions, and his distrust of big government. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.
Annotation:
In this study of the life and thought of Ronald Reagan, historian John Patrick Diggins traces an arc in Reagan's outlook that runs, over time, from liberal to conservative. He begins with Reagan's years as governor of California, and notes that Reagan's politics were rooted in his identification with the Founding Fathers and his readings of the revolutionary rhetoric of pamphleteers such as Thomas Paine. Without questioning his sincerity, Diggins follows the path from the 1960s Reagan to the later Reagan, who was considered presentable as a nationwide candidate for the Republican party, and finally to the mature Reagan who as president urged Gorbachev to "tear down that wall."
