Reagan as President
Contemporary Views of the Man, His Politics, and His Policies
Ronald Reagan brought a new ideology and a new spirit to the American presidency, qualities which made him the most controversial President since FDR and which surely will stamp his administration as “the Reagan era.” This collection of almost a hundred articles and essays, edited with commentary by Paul Boyer, explores Reagan's domestic programs and foreign policies, focusing on the major public issues and controversies of the period. The President himself—his personality, his foibles, his presidential style—is also debated. The contributors range from Garry Wills and Donald Regan to James J. Kilpatrick and William F. Buckley, Jr. The result is an incomparable perspective on the Reagan presidency and a harvest of reading that is richly evocative of a lively and seminal era in American history.
