Synopses & Reviews
This beautifully illustrated book commemorates the life and presidency of Ronald Wilson Reagan-who renewed America's sense of optimism, revived its economy, and won the Cold War without firing a single shot.
Peter Robinson, Reagan's special assistant and speechwriter, has written the text and captions, and the book features an artful combination of well-known and less-seen images; six annotated landmark speeches, including “Remarks on East-West Relations at the Brandenburg Gate” (1987); and an introduction by Newt and Callista Gingrich.
