Sleepwalking Through History: America In The Reagan Years. A readable critique of the fatuous illusions foisted on a willing society by American leadership in the 1980s. Foreign Policy Reagan Administration.

"Elegant prose, devastating insight and a keen historical perspective."―Cleveland Plain Dealer

National bestseller: In this brilliantly readable book, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist chronicles the Reagan decade, when America fell from dominant world power to struggling debtor nation and when optimism turned to foreboding. In human terms and living case histories, Haynes Johnson captures the drama and tragedy of an era nurtured by greed and a morality that found virtue in not getting caught. "It is morning again in America," Reagan's campaign commercials told us, and for too long we embraced that convenient lie. Indeed, the problems that came to plague us in that decade are with us even more today, as Johnson memorably demonstrates in―his afterword, "Notes on an Era," written especially for this new paperback reissue. This book will remain a signature work of political analysis for years to come. 32 b/w illustrations

Love Me
What an amazing book to read now, in 2014. It supplies the groundwork for all that came later, from the privatizing of the military, prisons, etc., the destruction of unions and collective bargaining, the destruction of safeguards in the financial sector. Inequality is mentioned as growing at an incredible rate, but laughably tiny compared to today's standards. I will keep it and read it again. I've bookmarked dozens of pages for reference. The book was completed in 1990 and it's a prescient story. I recommend it highly to anyone interested in the economic conditions in 2014.

great read

As my daughter likes to say "I got to the party late." I finally got around to reading "Sleepwalking Through History," although we've had a copy since it was first released in 1991. I have become fascinated with books about the American presidents since I read "The Presidents Club" earlier this year. Like so many others on the subject, I found this one difficult to put down. After reading it, I find it amazing that President Reagan was not impreached for the Iran-contra scandal.
Adaly
One of the few books that tell the true story of the Reagan years.
Ubrise
Excellent book by an accomplished author. Reveals the real Ronald Reagan administration and the corruption within it to counter all the books of praise that have been written about that period of U.S. history. It's amazing that Reagan was not impeached. His actions were much worse than Watergate, as described in this book.
Swift Summer
Excellent review of what made Reagan "tick" and his presidency. I really like how he explains the beginning of the theory about supply-side economics.

ordered for my daughter; loved the book.
Another excellent read. As far as I'm concerned, everything bad about America started with Reagan.
