From his first days in office, President Ronald Reagan enjoyed public affection and went on to win the hearts of many Americans. Peggy Noonan, special assistant to President Reagan, shows that the secret of Reagan's success is his character: courage, persistence, honesty, and incredible patience in the face of setbacks. Noonan shares her own reflections on Reagan as well as those of the Bush presidents, Reagan's Secret Service men, White House colleagues, and the First Family, revealing the true nature of a man who is viewed, even by his opponents, as a maker of history. Marked by incisive wit and elegant prose, When Character Was King may be the last word on Ronald Reagan, not only as a leader but as a man.

From 1975 to 1979 Ronald Reagan gave more than 1000 daily radio broadcasts, the great majority of which he wrote himself. This program represents the opening of a major archive of pre-presidential material from the Reagan Library and the Hoover Institution Archives. These addresses transform our image of Ronald Reagan, and enhance and revise our understanding of the late 1970s--a time when Reagan held no political office, but was nonetheless mapping out a strategy to transform the economy, end the cold war, and create a vision of America that would propel him to the presidency. Abridged. 6 hours, 5 CDs.

While serving his two terms as the fortieth president of the United States, Ronald Reagan kept a handwritten daily diary of his innermost thoughts and observations on the historic and the routine day-to-day occurrences of his presidency. This remarkable record is the only daily presidential diary in American history.

Edited by Douglas Brinkley, The Reagan Diaries provides fascinating insight into one of this nation's most important presidencies and sheds new light on the character of a true American leader. No matter where he was in the world, each night Reagan wrote about the events of his day, which often included his relationships with other world leaders, including Mikhail Gorbachev, Pope John Paul II, Mohammar al-Qaddafi, and Margaret Thatcher, among others, and the unforgettable moments that defined his era - his first inauguration, the end of the Cold War, the Iran hostage crisis, John Hinckley Jr.'s assassination attempt, and many more.

Revealing more than just Reagan's political experiences, many entries are concerned with the president's private thoughts and feelings - his love and devotion for Nancy Reagan and their family, his belief in God and the power of prayer.

Filled with Reagan's trademark wit and sharp intelligence, these diaries give us a unique understanding of one of the most beloved presidents in our nation's history.
