Synopsis: In a revealing new book, Reagan insider and former adviser, Thomas Reed gives us the definitive treatise on Reagan's mind. Reed, who managed and worked closely with Reagan during the complex leader's politically formative years, reveals untold tales that bring new clarity to understanding Reagan. The Reagan Enigma takes students of politics one step closer to understanding the emergence of a great leader.
On the golden anniversary of Reagan's A Time for Choosing speech in support of Barry Goldwater's presidential campaign, which launched Reagan s political career, this groundbreaking book reveals:
Reagan's mind was focused and decisive. He was a political grand master, a dozen moves ahead of every opponent at every turn. His mind was lightning-fast, with an immense capacity for facts and history. Reagan was more than an actor; he was a master of the stage.
Reagan's conversion, from FDR-supporting Democrat to Eisenhower Republican had multiple roots: WW-II experiences; threats of violence from communist Screen Actors Guild infiltrators; the war in Korea; to name a few.
Reagan was not ambitious for high office. Yet whatever he did in his life, he had to be the best at it. The idea of having power or being the President was entertaining, but it was Nancy who provided the burning ambition. At the same time, as Mike Deaver noted, Reagan was the fiercest competitor I ever knew. A strange divergence.
Why Robert Kennedy was the supreme villain in Reagan's life.
Now is the right time to open my archives, to collect the insights of my surviving peers, and to weave all of this into an unexpected but accurate explanation of Reagan's mind, Reed said. What follows may provide the perspective that many have sought but few have found.
About the Author: Thomas C. Reed is a former Secretary of the Air Force, having served in that capacity during the Ford and Carter administrations. During the mid sixties and early seventies, Reed managed and directed Reagan's gubernatorial campaigns along with the 1968 presidential nomination drive.
