The American Experience: Reagan

The American Experience: Reagan. In-depth portrait of the 40th president includes timeline, gallery of photos, brief descriptions of the people and events that played a key role in Reagan's administration, and transcripts of various speeches. From PBS.

From the site:

In 1988, after two terms in office, Ronald Reagan left the White House one of the most popular presidents of the twentieth century -- and one of the most controversial. A failed actor, Reagan became a passionate ideologue who preached a simple gospel of lower taxes, less government, and anti-communism. One by one, his opponents underestimated him; one by one, Reagan surprised them, rising to become a president who always preferred to see America as a "shining city on a hill."
