A long-time journalist and keen presidential watcher, Jacob Weisberg, Slate's chair and editor-in-chief, created the “Bushisms” series and is also a contributing editor of Vanity Fair, and a columnist for The Financial Times. His new book joins the distinguished American Presidents Series, offering a portrait of the 40th chief executive that challenges assumptions about his political philosophy. Reagan’s conservativism, Weisberg argues, did not preclude compromise, and his rejection of nuclear arms was as firm as his antipathy to big government.
Join Jacob Weisberg on Friday, Jan. 8th at 7 p.m at Politics & Prose.
