About this item
In Ronald Reagan's own words, these diary entries provide an up-close and personal account of how the 40th president viewed his daily life, public and private. His love of his wife, Nancy; his relations with world leaders; his acerbic view of the press; and his encounters with everyday Americans comprise this record of the thoughts of "the great communicator," as he was called, and the three thousand days that made history. Historian David Brinkley assembled these entries and provides commentary.
Culled from his handwritten daily diaries, an account of the fortieth president's eight years in the oval office offers insight into his character as well as the behind-the-scenes factors that contributed to such events as his first inauguration and the end of the Cold War. 200,000 first printing. Reprint.
