Praise for Steven F. Hayward’s The Age of Reagan: The Fall of the Old Liberal Order, 1964—1980

“Grand and fascinating history . . . The Age of Reagan goes far towards making the definitive historical case for Reagan’s greatness.”
National Review

“Reads at times like a grand historical drama, a kind of War and Peace of the American century, complete with romance and adventure and tragic characters, a thrilling survey of what we might have thought to be familiar history but which appears here quite transformed.”
Times Literary Supplement

“A massive achievement . . . It is hard to imagine anyone doing better. . . . Mr. Hayward leaves us awed by his achievement and looking forward hungrily to Volume II.”
Washington Times

“Excellent . . . [Hayward] acknowledges Mr. Reagan’s sunny personality and ease in public, but he dismisses these as significant factors in his election. What mattered was Mr. Reagan’s unflinching conservatism and strong character, coupled with liberalism’s failures. Mr. Hayward is persuasive on this point.”
Wall Street Journal

“A big, bold, ambitious book by one of the rising stars of the conservative intellectual movement, Steven F. Hayward . . . The best historical biography yet written about our fortieth president.”
World and I

“An invaluable contribution to the small but growing body of serious work that finally gives Reagan his due. Readers not only will profit immensely from reading this first volume, but will long for the publication of the next.”
Weekly Standard

“A magnificent new history of our times. It is a big book in every way and yet it reads quickly and delightfully. . . . The Age of Reagan is the best single-volume account of Reagan’s rise and liberalism’s fall. This superb book deserves and undoubtedly will get a wide readership.”
Claremont Review of Books
