President Reagan: The Role of a Lifetime - Lou CannonPublic Affairs, 2000, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.
From the cover: “Hailed by the Los Angeles Times as “the-single most indispensable book on the-inner workings of the White House and the precise contributions of Ronald Reagan to his own presidency”, President Reagan has emerged as the definitive account of the Reagan years written by a distinguished biographer and journalist who covered the man for more than a quarter century. Ronald Wilson Reagan, the first and only actor to become president of the United States, wondered how anyone could do the job without such training. He saw the presidency as his greatest role, performed on a world stage. But there was always more to Reagan than his resonant performances and his all-American smile. Although underestimated by friends and foes alike, Reagan proposed bold and controversial programs and dreamed of a prosperous America in a world at peace. In President Reagan, Lou Cannon explores and analyses the subtleties and contradictions of the off-stage actor who sought to remake and rearm America and bring an end to the Cold War.
