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.
