Synopsis:

The Reagan era is usually seen as an era of unheralded prosperity, and as a highwatermark of Republican success. President Ronald Reagan’s belief in “Reaganomics”, his media-friendly sound-bites and “can do” personality have come to define the era. However, this was also a time of domestic protest and unrest. Under Reagan the US was directly involved in the revolutions which were sweeping the Central Americas El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala – and in Nicaragua Reagan armed the Contras who fought the Sandinistas.

This book seeks to show how the left within the US reacted and protested against these events. The Nation, Verso Books and the Guardian exploded in popularity, riding high on the back of popular antiinterventionist sentiment in America, while
the film-maker Oliver Stone led a group of directors making films with a radical leftwing message. The author shows how the
1980s in America were a formative cultural period for the anti-Reaganites as well as the Reaganites, and in doing so charts a new history of a formative era in American cultural and political history.


Winner of the 2016 British Association for American Studies Arthur Miller Centre Prize for Best First Book in American Studies.

About the Author: Nick Witham is Senior Lecturer in American Social and Cultural History at Canterbury Christ Church University and the author of several articles on filmmakers, writers and left-wing politics in 1980s America
