Overview

Includes:
•Charles River Editors original biography of Ronald Reagan
•Reagan’s Inaugural Addresses, all of his State of the Union Addresses, and his Farewell Address

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” – Ronald Reagan

In the famous movie Back to the Future, Marty McFly travels back to 1955, and, in an attempt to convince his friend Doc Brown that he is from 1985, tells the 1955 version of Doc Brown that Ronald Reagan is president. Doc looks at him incredulously and laughs, chortling, “Ronald Reagan? The actor?” In a story that could have come straight out of Hollywood, the golden actor rose through California politics to become California governor and eventually the 40th President.
The 70+ year old former actor then went on to have one of the most consequential presidencies of the 20th century, unquestionably making him one of the most influential men of the last 50 years. And his name is still as relevant in American politics today, with every politician with an R next to his or her name trying to claim Ronald Reagan’s conservative mantle. In the Republican presidential nomination debates in 2011, Reagan’s name was invoked an average of over 5 times per debate, more than every other president combined. Meanwhile, Americans of all stripes continue to debate the merits of “Reaganomics” more than 30 years after Reagan was elected.

Like all legends, Reagan’s lengthy life and career have been molded to fit certain narratives, to the point that they obscure the actual man. The Ultimate Ronald Reagan Collection looks at the personal and family life of the Golden Age actor, governor and president, while highlighting his accomplishments and assessing his ongoing legacy. Along with an original biography, this collection includes Reagan’s inaugural addresses, state of the union addresses, farewell address, and pictures of important people, places, and events.
