REAGAN: The Life, by H.W. Brands (Doubleday). The Pulitzer Prize-winning author who has written about Ulysses S. Grant and Franklin D. Roosevelt, turns his scholarly eye to our 40th president, perhaps the most influential American leader in the latter half of the 20th century and an icon to American conservatives. Brands follows Reagan from childhood in an FDR-loving family through his years as an actor and radio announcer, his entry into politics, governorship of California and dramatic presidency.
