Product description

This collection of essays from a broad cross-section of historians and political scientists provides a 'second generation' scholarly assessment of Ronald Reagan's presidency. The authors use a mix of comparative case-studies and quantitative approaches. Many of the essays have their roots in research presented at the International Conference on the History of the Presidency of Ronald Reagan at the University of California, Santa Barbara, in March 2002.
