The Reagan administration has been both eulogised and reviled. This book explores the Reagan policy, style and substance and considers the initial aspirations of the two Reagan administrations, examines the constraints they endured and assesses the legacy of achievement and failure. The analysis, which is the work of a group of British and American scholars, highlights both the accomplishments and the shortcomings of the first president since Eisenhower to serve two full terms in the White House. The conclusion is that while the new conservative approach ended the 20 year expansion of domestic programmes and made Americans "stand tall" in the world, the revolution in American politics was incomplete, leaving much unfinished business to be tackled by Ronald Reagan's successor.
