Description

Former Ronald Reagan advisor and bestselling author Michael K. Deaver gathers the nation's leading figures to define conservatism, explore Reagan's impact on conservative philosophy, and examine what it means to be a conservative in America today.

In Why I Am a Reagan Conservative, the most powerful minds in politics and media come together to provide the reasons behind their beliefs, offer personal accounts of their time in politics and government, and explain the late Ronald Reagan's impact on the Grand Old Party. Among them,

Bill Frist believes the roots of a person's ideology can be traced to their life experience. Robert D. Novak considers that what really makes a conservative is believing the government is always the problem, rather than the solution. Ken Mehlman expresses that freedom is the foundation of international peace, and the renewed commitment of each generation prevents its collapse. J. C. Watts, Jr., remembers Ronald Reagan, who challenged America to think about what it wanted to become. Bob Dole discusses a long legacy of timeless values, from the bleak 1930s to the difficult days after 9/11. Orrin G. Hatch discourses on how the ReaganRevolution restored the essential American values -- individualism and enterprise, initiative and optimism, charity and sacrifice -- in all of us. And many more.

Through them not only do we learn about the people who share with us their thoughts on politics and worldly situations, but we also gain an understanding of the modern conservative mind and movement and all its precepts.

As the power of the Republican party continues to grow, a bold new conservative movement is taking form in America. This timely and unprecedented new collection will elucidate and explore the impact of the man who fueled the fire of a rapidly growing political movement.
