On June 12, 1987, Ronald Reagan addressed a crowd of 20,000 people in West Berlin in the shadow of the Berlin Wall. The words he delivered that afternoon would become among the most famous in presidential history. "Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate," Reagan said. "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this Wall!" In this riveting and fast-paced book, Romesh Ratnesar... more...

The presidency of Ronald Reagan has become a Rorschach Test for politicians and citizens alike. Conservatives see the Reagan era as the high-water mark for their movement, in much the same way that many progressives view FDR's presidency as the pinnacle of liberalism. Liberals maintain that the rosy Reagan legacy is based largely on myth, and that... more...
Military Force as an Instrument of U.S. Foreign Policy: Intervention in Lebanon, August 1982-February 1984ABC-CLIO 1991; US$ 130.00
Although over six years have passed since the Lebanon intervention ended, American leaders appear to be no closer to an appreciation of what went wrong than they were in 1984. Ralph Hallenbeck's authoritative account of the American intervention in Lebanon fills this significant void. His study goes a long way toward explicating those factors that... more...

A comprehensive analysis of the U.S. Central America peace movement, Resisting Reagan explains why more than one hundred thousand U.S. citizens marched in the streets, illegally housed refugees, traveled to Central American war zones, committed civil disobedience, and hounded their political representatives to contest the Reagan administration's... more...
- Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2011; US$ 8.99
In this engaging new book, Bradford Martin illuminates a different 1980s than many remember?one whose history has been buried under the celebratory narrative of conservative ascendancy. Ronald Reagan looms large in most accounts of the period, encouraging Americans to renounce the activist and liberal politics of the 1960s and ?70s and embrace the... more...

At the height of Ronald Reagan's popularity in July 1986, Time magazine wrote glowingly of how he had "found America's sweet spot." Reagan seemed a "magician who carries a bright, ideal America like a holograph in his mind and projects its image in the air." Not since the rhapsody about "Camelot" that surrounded... more...
- Columbia University Press 2007; US$ 23.99
Based on a newly discovered collection of private papers as well as interviews and corporate documents, Thomas W. Evans links the eight years (1954-1962) in which Reagan worked for General Electric-acting as host of its television program, GE Theater, and traveling the country as the company's public-relations envoy-to his conversion to conservatism.... more...
- Palgrave Macmillan 2012; US$ 100.00
A new exploration of the relationship between the Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan administrations in domestic policy. Using recently released documentary material and extensive research interviews, James Cooper demonstrates how specific policy transfer between these 'political soul mates' was more limited than is typically assumed. more...
- Beaufort Books 2014; US$ 16.95
Perhaps no other president's name is invoked by politicians as much as Ronald Reagan's. Every election, as presidential hopefuls jockey for the Republican nomination, each one claims to be a "Reagan conservative." But are these candidates truly carrying on the mantle of Ronald Reagan, or are they abusing the memory of our great president?... more...
