Dr. Lee Edwards is the Distinguished Fellow in Conservative Thought at The Heritage Foundation. A prolific writer, Lee Edwards' essays have appeared in Reader's Digest, National Review and such leading newspapers as the The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Detroit News, and The Washington Times. His fifteen books range from Ronald Reagan: A Political Biography, written in 1967 to Educating for Liberty: The First Half Century of ISI, written in 2003, and include Missionary for Freedom: The Life and Times of Walter Judd, Goldwater: The Man Who Made a Revolution and The Conservative Revolution: The Movement that Remade America. Educated at Duke University, the Sorbonne (Paris) and the Catholic University of America, Dr. Edwards was a fellow at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, and is now an Adjunct Professor of Politics at the Catholic University of America. He was founding director of the Institute on Political Journalism at Georgetown University, is past president of The Philadelphia Society and is Chairman of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation.

Edwards offers an interesting perspective on Reagan's transformation from a liberal Democrat who was an ethusiastic supporter of Franklin Roosevelt to a conservative Republican who eschewed big government... Readers will find this book to be both well-written and informative. The author has provided an important political analysis of Reagan and his presidency.--Robin Dasher-Alston "ForeWord Reviews "
