    PDF The Age of Reagan eBook µ The Age Epub / ↠ smrl.me reagan pdf, The Age book, The Age of Reagan KindleThis is the second volume of historian Steven Hayward’s voluminous biography of Ronald Reagan As with any modern widely documented life “voluminous” does not mean “comprehensive”—there is no such thing and Reagan in particular is the type of man who when writing about the biographer must select his facts and weave them into a coherent whole that takes the measure of the man In this Hayward succeeds brilliantly while simultaneously illuminating the America of the 1980s—for as I noted when reviewing the first volume this biography is about the Age of Reagan not merely Reagan himself But compared to that first volume this volume subtitled The Conservative Counterrevolution 1980 1989 is much about Reagan and less about his times Or rather it is about his times but viewed nearly exclusively through the prism of Reagan who after all molded those times t

    PDF The Age of Reagan eBook µ The Age Epub / ↠ smrl.me reagan pdf, The Age book, The Age of Reagan KindleThe previous volume The Fall of the Old Liberal Order filled the gaps in my knowledge of the main political affairs of the 60's and 70's from the technocracy of Johnson to the cynicism of Nixon and Ford to the euivocations of Carter all presiding over a pseudo cultural mass movement characterized by self destructive radicalism I think I've read at least four accounts of the Great Society by now but the pathetic management of Vietnam was something that needed better understanding Otherwise my knowledge of the 70's was probably solely based on Hollywood depiction so Hayward did me a great educational service in informing me of the Great Duel of Carter and the Rabid Rabbit One point of continuing frustration the way we use the terms liberalism conservatism and their neo counterparts is always an incoherent headache so it should be specified that Hayward is speaking about New Deal technocrats when he's speaking of liberals in these books The Conservative Counte

    PDF The Age of Reagan eBook µ The Age Epub / ↠ smrl.me reagan pdf, The Age book, The Age of Reagan KindleThis book is a good read on Reagan's presidency The author really portrays Reagan in a positive light and I too now see Reagan as moderate than present day conservatives try to paint him My one complaint is that the book seems to focus heavily to Reagan's foreign policy which is to be expected with the Cold War and all but I feel that there could have been discussion on his domestic agenda In a

    PDF The Age of Reagan eBook µ The Age Epub / ↠ smrl.me reagan pdf, The Age book, The Age of Reagan KindleGreat conservative leaning analysis of Reagan's presidency I wish Hayward would have stuck to a narrative throughout but sometimes he drops the ball for instance cutting off Reagan's final address and departure from the White House I loved the discussion on Oliver North's testimony during the

    PDF The Age of Reagan eBook µ The Age Epub / ↠ smrl.me reagan pdf, The Age book, The Age of Reagan KindleA massive study and the companion of a work covering the 1960s and 1970s with noteworthy attention to the primary foreign policy arenas Russia Central America The work is arranged chronologically which sometimes gets in the way of the themes laid down by Hayward Not as insightful about the president's thinking and character but useful as a reference to the administration
