Both the Republican and Democratic parties are radically different today, mainly as a result of Ronald Reagan and the force of his ideas. Craig Shirley’s Last Act is the important final chapter in the life of President Reagan that no one has thus far covered. It’s the kind of book that widens our understanding of American history and of the presidency and the men who occupied it. Cast in a grand and compelling narrative style, Last Act contains interesting and heretofore untold anecdotes about President and Mrs. Reagan and how his shadow looms more and more over the Republican Party, Washington, the culture of America, and the world.
