|On the hundredth anniversary of Ronald Reagan''s birth comes the twentieth-anniversary edition of Peggy Noonan''s critically acclaimed bestseller What I Saw at the Revolution, for which she provides a new Preface that demonstrates this book''s timeless relevance. As a special assistant to the president, Noonan worked with Ronald Reagan--and with Vice President George H. W. Bush--on some of their most memorable speeches. Noonan shows us the world behind the words, and her sharp, vivid portraits of President Reagan and a host of Washington''s movers and shakers are rendered in inimitable, witty prose. Her priceless account of what it was like to be a speechwriter among bureaucrats, and a woman in the last bastion of male power, makes this a Washington memoir that breaks the mold--as spirited, sensitive, and thoughtful as Peggy Noonan herself.|
From the Publisher:
In an engaging memoir of life in American politics, a speechwriter in the Reagan Administration describes life in and around the White House, the speechwriting process, and the experience of being a woman in a traditionally male environment. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
