9780743219679: Reagan: A Life In Letters

The New York Times bestselling collection of Ronald Reagan’s letters—a definitive look at a man, an era, and a presidency.

Ronald Reagan may have been the most prolific correspondent of any American president since Theodore Roosevelt, having likely written more than 10,000 letters in his lifetime to a wide array of friends and family, politicians, private citizens, and children. Honest, open, and heartfelt, Reagan’s letters reveal a man who felt most comfortable and natural with pen in hand, and a man who reached out to friend and foe alike throughout his life. Reagan: A Life in Letters is as important as it is astonishing and moving.

Review:

Many books have been written about Ronald Reagan, but this collection of his letters must certainly be among the most varied and revealing about every aspect of the man. Organized by themes such as "Old Friends," "Running for Office," "Core Beliefs," "The Critics," and "Foreign Leaders," the book contains over 1,000 letters stretching from 1922 to 1994. Whether discussing economic policy with a political foe, dispensing marital advice, or sharing a joke with a pen pal, Reagan comes across as gracious, caring, and inquisitive. Even when responding to blistering criticism, he remained fair and thoughtful. As one would expect, many of the letters are addressed to world leaders, well-known American politicians, pundits, and journalists, and these are certainly interesting for their historical relevance and insights into Reagan's diplomatic style. Among the more fascinating notes, however, are those sent to private citizens, some of which are quite long and detailed. That Reagan would spend the time, as both governor of California and President, to respond to the concerns and inquiries of constituents reveals that he never forgot how he got to his positions of leadership in the first place. He even went so far on occasions to help make business connections for people he had never met in person. He also sent many letters to children. In one, he encouraged a young student to turn off the TV and grab a book instead: "Reading is a magic carpet and you can never be lonely if you learn to enjoy a good book." Taken as a whole, these revealing, well-written, and entertaining letters trace the story of Reagan's life and times as well as any standard biography. They also offer further proof of why he was dubbed "The Great Communicator." --Shawn Carkonen

Descrizione libro SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 2005. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Ronald Reagan was a prolific letter writer his entire life and his letters reveal a hidden life as a writer of power, grace, and astonishing productivity. They also reveal a man who treasured his friends, took his critics head-on, and loved his family deeply. Now, in what may be the most important collection of Reagan s writings yet, the editors draw from exclusive access to Reagan s complete collection of letters, numbering in the tens of thousands, to show that he was one of the last century s greatest correspondents as well. From his youthful days of financial struggle, through the Hollywood years, his two terms as California governor, and to the extraordinary two-term presidency, Reagan never stopped writing friends, family, supporters, and even opponents. This definitive collection is skilfully edited and annotated by Kiron K. Skinner, Annelise Anderson, and Martin Anderson, and it will be must reading for anyone interested in America s 40th president and the times in which he lived.
