Actor, Ideologue, Politician: The Public Speeches of Ronald Reagan

Synopsis

This new short anthology rounds out Ronald Reagan's rhetorical persona and fills a major gap in the literature about the man by offering an unbiased and a multi-dimensional picture of his public speeches during all phases of his political life. The 51 speech texts are arranged, with short introductions, into six topical chapters covering his Hollywood years, his eight years as governor of California, his presidential campaigns of 1976 and 1980, and his two terms as president. This compact reference provides a representative collection of speeches on major issues, and includes a short bibliography pointing to major sources and important studies as well as a full index.
