On Monday, May 11, 2009, historian and author Douglas Brinkley was at the Reagan Library to sign copies of The Reagan Diaries: Unabridged. Signed copies are still available in the Library’s Museum Store by calling 800-998-7641.

During his two terms as the fortieth president of the United States, Ronald Reagan kept a daily diary in which he recorded, by hand, his innermost thoughts and observations on the extraordinary, the historic, and the routine day-to-day occurrences of his presidency. Now, nearly two decades after he left office, this remarkable record-the only daily presidential diary in American history is available in an unabridged version.

Brought together in TWO volumes and edited by Doug Brinkley, The Reagan Diaries provides a striking insight into one of this nation’s most important presidencies and sheds new light on the character of a true American leader. Whether he was in his White House residence study or aboard Air Force One, each night Reagan wrote about the events of his day, which often included his relationships with other world leaders Mikhail Gorbachev, Pope John Paul II, Mohammar al-Qaddafi, and Margaret Thatcher, among others, and the unforgettable moments that defined the era from his first inauguration to the end of the Cold War, the Iran hostage crisis to John Hinckley, Jr.’s assassination attempt.
