But later Deaver unilaterally changed the title to Why I Am A Reagan Conservative and also dispensed with annoying details like sending proofs, galleys or even a copy of the published book-an example of thriftiness that would surely warm the hearts of News Corporation's Scottish founders. Many thanks to the dear News Corp. friends who finally got me a copy!) Here's my essay, from pages 117-123.

Reviews about Why I Am a Reagan Conservative (7):
Kardana
Democrat-Republican,Liberal -Conservative,Left-Right,Socialist-Capitalist are all labels we attempt to apply to the political aspirations and ideas of people within society.And they are only broad descriptions.To those,we have can add an endless number of terms we apply to special interests ,such as; Free-Traders,Pro-Lifers,Bleeding-Hearts,Hard-Liners,Appeasers,Self-Reliants,Fundamentalists,Libertarians,Fascists,Secularists,Isolationists,Enviromentalists,Freedom-fighters,Nationalists,Patriots,Dissenters,Free-Speechers,people who believe in big Gouverment and those who believe it should be restrained,and Activists of all descriptions;just to name a few.
However;all these philosophies ,more or less fall into two broad categories;namely Socialist or Conservative. While;at times, there are some overlappings. Nor is it possible for any one person to agree with either of the two main camps on every issue.Political expediency is an everpresent force and for that reason some people tend to alter their political party affiliations over the years;while others hold to their party of choice;regardless of issues.
The Author has done a magnificient job of defining what a Conservative in America ,and in fact,the whole western world,really is at these times in history. In other words ,if you believe in the ideas professed in this book;you are a Conservative thinker;and if you don't ,you are by default, not.
Rather than write a ling disertation,the author has chosen to approach a large number of Conservatives and have them write short essays of a couple of pages,to explain what being a Conservative is all about.
In all,we can read what 54 well known Conservatives have to say about defining Conservativeism.
Personally,I came from a very staunch Liberal background and considered myself one for many,many years, However as the 60's came to an end,I found there were many things that changed the way I thought and I no longer felt compfortable with that side of the political spectrum and for the last two decades have moved to the Conservative philosophy.
What I found startling is that so many of the people who wrote the essays in this book went through the same prosess as did I.
This has always concerned me and I think the words of Ronald Reagan pretty well explains things when he said ;"I didn't leave the Democratic Party;they left me".
Another thing I liked about this book is that it stays with defining what it is to be Conservative in a positive manner and is virtually free from negativism towards other points of view.
I really believe even someone who is not a Concervative could enjoy this book,they may well not agree with the philosophies of the writers.That is all well and good because the book does an excellent job of informing without being insulting,dismissive or disparaging to other points of view.

Mike Deaver has written another must-read for anyone interested in the philosophical underpinnings of the Reagan (and Republican) revolutions. His insights demonstrate once again why Republicans control the current political agenda, and are likely to for years to come. Democrats should also buy this book to more fully understand why the power of conservative ideas has begun to appeal to more of their traditional core voter groups (women, Hispanic voters, Catholics).

The editor, Michael Deaver, has written a number of my favorite political books.

Deaver is well respected and widely regarded by both opinion leaders and conservatives: 1) As THE authority on all things Reagan and 2)As THE pioneer for political image gurus.

Now (a year after President Reagan's passing and with the '04 election in the rearview mirror) is the perfect time to discuss Reagan's legacy and it's huge impact on the future of conservatism and American politics.

Republicans longing for another hero or just their conservative pony in '08 will really get a lot out of this book.
Qusserel
Edited by Michael Deaver, this is a series of essays by prominent Republicans who are remembering Ronald Reagan. Reagan will probably go down in the history books as one of the better presidents during this time period. After all, at the beginning of the period we were in the midst of the Cold War and at the end it was over, the Soviet Union was no more. Untold fortunes spent, tremendous risks of nuclear war, all were gone, the Cold War was over.

Note that this is concerned with Ronald Reagan conservative views. This is not necessarily the same as the George W. Bush views. Mr. Bush seems to have taken the conservative agenda re abortion, affirmative action, and other issues much further than did Reagan.

The present day conservative Republicans would have you believe, would like to believe themselves that the country has made a major turn to the right wing. They view the past election as confirmation of this rightward shift. I believe they are ignoring the fact that a couple of week candidates in the form of Kerry/Edwards, and good fundamental politics on the part of the Republicans (especially the Ohio grass roots effort) enabled a victory.

It is at their risk that they forget that the country isn't as right wing as the stalwarts of the Republican party. Nor is it as liberal as the hard core of the Democratic party. One thing about our country, there's another election coming. The country votes for the one considered the most center oriented. The country doesn't want gun or abortion control.

This book is worth reading as a view of what these particular party members are thinking.
Gardall
Great book with short chapters on why people believe (and still do) about Reagan's conservative values and thinking about the gov't.

Prior review seems to have another agenda (he advocates in another review that Chuck Norris should be shot. . . i think a few sandwiches short of a picnic)and will never understand why Reagan was good on so many levels. Was Reagan perfect, no, but he had an unwavering belief and thought that America is capable of great things and can accomplish those things. I remember the late 70's and early 80's. things after Carter were not good at all (quite bad economically and internationally). Reagan picked up the pieces and brought the US to a MUCH better place.
Morlunn
With Howard Dean spewing daily venom and cable news channels holding shouting contests posing as news, it is virtually idyllic to read about the impact that the political leadership of one man - who represented decency, strength and graciousness - had on so many influential leaders.

If you long for politics based on deep policy differences but not dark personal aggression, this is your book.
