How Reagan became Reagan

Our friend Steven Hayward is the author of The Age of Reagan. Steve is a gifted, ambitious and audacious historian. The first volume of his two-volume history was published in 2001 and covers Reagan’s ascent to the presidency in 1980; the second volume, on which Steve is working, will cover Reagan’s presidency. When he completes the second volume The Age of Reagan will constitute a conservative counterweight to Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.’s endless, unfinished The Age of Roosevelt.
Steve’s terrific essay on the development of Reagan’s thought is featured in the new issue of the Claremont Review of Books, a quarterly magazine that has become my favorite periodical. Steve’s essay is “How Reagan became Reagan.”
