This collection of authentic quotations of Ronald Reagan will appeal to all those interested in the former US President and who seek to understand more about his beliefs and the inner man. For many Americans-conservatives and liberals alike, students and historians, concerned citizens and politicians-Reagan remains a major figure whose legacy still influences political and cultural debates over many core issues, especially those concerning the role, reach, and power of government. Based on Reagan's own sayings, writings, letters, and essays-not those of aides and speechwriters-this work provides the only comprehensive collection of the man's own thinking on a full spectrum of relevant topics over his long life. It brings together over 1,500 quotations arranged alphabetically into 64 thematic categories. Most are serious-the Cold War, Communism, Federalism, Foreign Policy, the State-yet some illustrate Reagan the man: Curses, Humor in Adversity, Toasts, and even a small section on Wine.
