Ronald Reagan by John Patrick Diggins
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this bold, revisionist biography, distinguished historian John Patrick Diggins shows that Ronald Reagan, in his distrust of big government, his pursuit of libertarian ideals, and his negotiations with Gorbachev, was a far more active and sophisticated president than we previously knew. Affirming the fortieth president to be an exemplar of the truest conservative values, Diggins "identifies Reagan as the `Emersonian President,' who believed that power is best when it resides in people, not government" (Library Journal).
