Book Cover
A Companion to Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan's life (1911–2004) spanned some of the most important domestic and international events of the last century. Moreover, his administration (1981–1989) represents a pivotal point in American history, when the pattern of U.S. domestic and foreign policy was fundamentally and permanently changed. As perhaps the key political figure in the last quarter of the twentieth century, Reagan's legacy continues to exercise significant influence on contemporary politics.

Providing a systematic and definitive examination of Reagan's life and legacy in its entirety, A Companion to Ronald Reagan evaluates the events, policies, politics, and people of his administration, and assesses the scope and influence of his various careers – sportscaster, actor, political activist, governor, and political icon – within the context of the times. Finally, it grapples with Reagan's evolving historical and popular legacy in the twenty-first century. Providing the most comprehensive coverage of Ronald Reagan, his administration, and his legacy currently available, this unique companion is the definitive resource for undergraduate and graduate students as well as scholars.
