Tear Down This Myth
How the Reagan Legacy Has Distorted Our Politics and Haunts Our Future
Two decades after leaving office, the legend of Ronald Reagan looms larger than ever over America’s political life. The misplaced hero worship was perpetuated even more last year by 2008’s Republican presidential hopefuls – running on platforms that distorted or exaggerated the real Reagan in an effort to be seen as the political heir to the Gipper. In Tear Down This Myth – How the Reagan Legacy Has Distorted Our Politics and Haunts Our Future, author Will Bunch dispels the Reagan mythology driving much of our modern politics and takes readers inside the Reagan myth machine.
