Ronnie and Jesse: a political odyssey by Lou Cannon( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ronnie and Jesse aren't lovers; their prospective clash in 1970 for the governorship of California makes this dual biography and scrutiny of California's volatile politics a ripe worm for political early birds anticipating a contest of national interest. Although one suspects that Cannon (an award-winning journalist) would cast his ballot for Mr. Unruh, his treatment of both contenders is frank and fair and there are no obvious breaches of objectivity. The material on Reagan sheds no significant new light on a career already well chronicled in William Boyarsky's The Rise of Ronald Reagan (1968), though there is much intimate detail (and he was a fine actor!)

The Reagan paradox : the conservative icon and today's GOP( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long known as The Great Communicator, Ronald Reagan has been credited with leading an ideological renaissance of the Republican Party and has become an icon to many Republicans and party leaders. Now, ten years following his death, and twenty-five years following the end of his two terms in office, the man who was credited with so much, including Reaganomics, ending the Cold War, and The War on Drugs, has become the ideological standard-bearer for a party that bears little resemblance to the one that he helped to define. So much so, that in hindsight, many of his views and policies appear to be centrist in comparison. This provides the perfect opportunity for The Editors of TIME magazine, in conjunction with many highly-regarded and well-respected writers and journalists familiar with Reagan, including Lou Cannon, Jon Meacham, Nick Clooney, Bob Spitz, and more with an introduction by Joe Scarborough, to examine the man, the politician, and the President, and the paradox of an ideological hero who no longer represents the party that he helped to define, or in fact, does he?

Last act : the final years and emerging legacy of Ronald Reagan by Craig Shirley( Recording )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His name in American politics is more cited than any other president. Both the Republican and Democratic parties are radically different today, mainly as a result of Ronald Reagan and the force of his ideas. No twentieth century president shaped the American political landscape so profoundly. Craig Shirley's Last Act is the important final chapter in the life of Reagan that no one has thus far covered. It's the kind of book that widens our understanding of American history and of the presidency and the men who occupied it. To tell Reagan's story, Craig has secured the complete, exclusive, and enthusiastic support of the Reagan Foundation and Library and spent considerable time there reviewing sealed files and confidential information. Cast in a grand and compelling narrative style, Last Act contains interesting and heretofore untold anecdotes about Reagan, Mrs. Reagan, their pleasure at retirement, the onslaught of the awful Alzheimer's and how he and Mrs. Reagan dealt with the diagnosis, the slow demise, the extensive plans for a state funeral, the outpouring from the nation, which stunned the political establishment, the Reagan legacy, and how his shadow looms more and more over the Republican Party, Washington, the culture of America, and the world
