To modify a famous quote, most people don’t want to know how sausage or government policy is made. In both instances the process is messy and it is frequently difficult to see how a palatable end product will ever come into being. But for government policy in a democracy, it is very important to know the details, even if it takes decades for them to come out.In The Reagan Files: Inside The National Security Council, editor Jason Saltoun-Ebin (@TheReaganFiles) takes the reader inside the room a [...]

If your a fan of Ronald Reagan, Gorbachev, or the cold war, you need to read this book. Although I haven't quite finished it (its rather lengthy but that's definitely not a bad thing), I find this book so interesting and fascinating. It's like your a fly on the wall listening to President Reagan prevent a World War III. I feel like I know Ronald Reagan better than I could by reading any number of biographies. To sum it up this is a really cool insight in to what was really going on.

An incredible collection of meeting minutes from the Reagan administration. If you want a good picture of what it was like to run the country during those days, this is the book for you. Not for the casual reader.

I won this book as part of ' First Reads program in exchange for my review.

Knowing that, it is still an impressive b [...]

This is an extensive collection of 1981-88 Reagan White House documents including meeting transcripts, letters, notes and even a few entries in Reagan's diary.

He reigned over the meetings, keeping people on task and inserting an [...]

President Reagan was one of those leaders who saw through the double talk and acted firmly when it came to dealing with the enemies of freedom. The politicians who surround the white house must have had nightmares the whole time he was in office. I wish he could have had 2 more terms and maybe the world would be truely peacefull I would rank him in the top 3 presidents of our country! Thank you MR. President!I received this on as a First read, thanks a million!

I want to read this book so bad!
