They called it the Reagan revolution- Ronald Reagan noted in his Farewell Address. Well- Ill accept that- but for me it always seemed more like the great rediscovery- a rediscovery of our values and our common sense. Nearly two decades after that 1989 speech- debate continues to rage over just how revolutionary those Reagan years were. The Reagan Revolution: A Very Short Introduction identifies and tackles some of the controversies and historical mysteries that continue to swirl around Reagan and his legacy- while providing an illuminating look at some of the eras defining personalities- ideas- and accomplishments. Gil Troy- a well-known historian who is a frequent commentator on contemporary politics- sheds much light on the phenomenon known as the Reagan Revolution- situating the reception of Reagans actions within the contemporary liberal and conservative political scene. While most conservatives refuse to countenance any criticism of their hero- an articulate minority laments that he did not go far enough. And while some liberals continue to mourn just how far he went in changing America- others continue to mock him as a disengaged- do-nothing dunce.Nevertheless- as Troy shows- two and a half decades after Reagans 1981 inauguration- his legacy continues to shape American politics- diplomacy- culture- and economics. Both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush modeled much of their presidential leadership styles on Reagans example- while many of the debates of the 80s about the budget- tax cutting- defense-spending- and American values still rage.
