THIS WEEK’S REA­GAN READ­ING

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Those who can never get enough in­sight and in­spi­ra­tion from Ron­ald Rea­gan are in luck. Now on book shelves, it’s “The Rea­gan Enigma” by Thomas C. Reed, an in­sider’s in­sider who says that the 40th pres­i­dent was a po­lit­i­cal grand master “a dozen moves ahead of ev­ery op­po­nent.”

Mr. Reed is a for­mer Sec­re­tary of the Air Force who also man­aged Rea­gan’s gu­ber­na­to­rial cam­paigns, his 1968 pres­i­den­tial nom­i­na­tion drive and served as a White House spe­cial as­sis­tant for na­tional se­cu­rity pol­icy.

“Now is the time for me to open my ar­chives, to col­lect the in­sights of my sur­viv­ing peers and to weave all of this into and un­ex­pected but ac­cu­rate ex­pla­na­tion of Rea­gan’s mind,”
