Summary
"Jules Tygiel's biography of Ronald Reagan engages students with the story of the man who went from Hollywood actor to president of the United States. This balanced biography considers both the accomplishments and failures of Reagan's presidency, as well as the contested legacy of his political career even after his death. Incorporating the latest scholarship, Ronald Reagan and the Triumph of American Conservatism examines Reagan both as an individual and in the larger context of the conservative movement."--Jacket
