He’s just published his fourth book about American conservatism, focusing on the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980. It’s called Reaganland. He’s also the author of Nixonland. Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download for your favorite mobile device.
