Summary
Wilentz, the eminent Princeton historian, argues that for the past thirty-five years U.S. political history has been defined by the new politics of conservatism brokered by its major powerhorse, Ronald Reagan. Following an analysis of Reagan's presidency, Wilentz concludes that Reagan not only transformed the stage of geopolitics, but also the American judiciary and government bureaucracy, while lifting the hearts of Americans who lived through Vietnam and Carter years
Summary
An appraisal of American politics in the aftermath of Watergate surveys the conservative movement throughout the past thirty-five years, evaluating Reagan's role in conservatism's success while surveying how his predecessors influenced his administration
