By popular demand, the Rio Grande Foundation is bringing Schweikart back to Albuquerque for a return engagement to discuss his new book Reagan, the American President.
In Reagan, New York Times #1 bestseller Larry Schweikart examines Reagan’s life through the lens of a conservative scholar who understands Reagan’s goals, intentions, and motivations. Through previously unseen administration documents, Schweikart reveals Reagan’s revolutionary initiative to create a North American energy zone (the forerunner to NAFTA), his role in crafting the Simpson-Mazzoli Act years before it passed, and the internal battles in his administration to press his economic recovery act through.
