Kiron Skinner talked about the book which she co-edited, Reagan, In His Own Hand: The Writings of Ronald Reagan That Reveal His Revolutionary Vision for America, published by The Free Press. The book collects President Reagan’s recently discovered writings from the late 1970s, when he delivered more than a thousand radio addresses. He wrote about two-thirds of these himself, in longhand on yellow legal paper, dealing with almost every national policy issue during the 1970s. The bulk of the book comprises these radio addresses, but a concluding section includes everything from a short story Reagan wrote as a school assignment when he was 14 to his letter in 1994 revealing his Alzheimer’s disease. close
