    1 thought on “The Reagan Revolution

    1. It is not all that common that one of the university presses like OUP would publish a book that treats a conservative icon with a glowing praise, even when that book is aimed at a general audience. Even more unusual is the title of this book, which minces no words in characterizing its subject in such an uncompromising and definitive terms as "The Reagan Revolution." Ronald Reagan was one of the most significant American presidents of the twentieth century, and part of his enduring appeal stems [...]

    2. every sentence in this book, and I mean EVERY ONE, just oozes with bias. I came to this book hoping for a balanced, neutral, and removed introduction to what exactly were the concrete policies and guiding vision of the Reagan administration and got treated to a whole book of unabashed propaganda-pamphlet speak. Some choice jewels from this book:1. [describing Reagan's campaign as governor against the civil rights movement]: "Americans needed another leader to guide them out of the dark cave of s [...]

    3. I found this book to be a decent account of the major events of the Reagan Presidency. Additionally, the author gives attention to Reagans personal life prior to his entering the political arena.However, the author wasn't a fan of Reagan. On several occasions the author would be making a seriously "left" statement, just to start the next with a seriously "right" statement. While I can recognize (and appreciate) when an author uses "compare and contrast" in their writing, this simply didn't feel [...]

    4. Not a fan of this book: like many of this series it sacrifices a certain breadth of coverage to find its point, but the excision of so much negative information about Reagan boggles the imagination. Troy neglects to mention the War on Drugs at all, or how Reagan’s popularity might be due to his establishment of acceptable racism in the face of black civil rights triumphs, or his probable sabotage of negotiations with Iran for their hostages’ release. His treatment of the Iran-Contra affair, [...]

    5. One of my childhood heros, who I turned against as I learned more about the Political Machine, and after reading this little book, I have to say that I appreciate the complexity of the Man.
