On Reagan: The Man and His Presidency
By Ronnie Dugger
McGraw-Hill, 1983, 320 pp.
A thorough attack from the liberal side on Ronald Reagan's ideas and policies. Dugger makes extensive use of the transcripts of Reagan's radio speeches in the 1970s in his documented portrait of a man dedicated, as Dugger sees it, to serving the rich at the expense of the poor, stripping away constitutional rights, reversing progress toward racial equality, plundering the nation's natural resources, and pursuing a foreign policy which risks nuclear war. No Democrat could ask for better campaign material.
