Blue Smoke and Mirrors: How Reagan Won and Why Carter Lost the Election of 1980

By Jack W. Germond and Jules Witcover
Viking, 1981
337 pp. $14.95
Purchase

Old-fashioned political reporting in the worthy tradition of Theodore H. White. This is a story of dramatic failures-Edward Kennedy, John Anderson, and above all Jimmy Carter-and of the ability of the Reagan team to avoid fatal mistakes.
