About Speaking My Mind
Chosen and annotated by the President himself, these speeches reflect
his concerns, his political philosophy, and the triumphs, the tragedies,
and the challenges of his years in office. From one of his earliest
speeches in 1951 to the speeches, great and small, that defined the
"Reagan Revolution," the voice of Ronald Reagan comes across in these
pages as strong, sure, warm, humorous, and deeply human, as he will
always be remembered.
Speaking My Mind is a unique and priceless invitation to share and
treasure the important moments of an American president, as well as the
daily business and concerns of the American presidency -- for these
speeches recall the major decisions, the summit meetings, the high
points of diplomacy and politics, as well as Ronald Reagan's deep
involvement with the lives and cares of ordinary Americans.
Each speech is preceded by Ronald Reagan's candid and often moving
comments on why it was given and under what circumstances, and a special
section is included of "The Wit and Wisdom of Ronald Reagan," reminding
us that this was a president who had plenty of both.
The most important speeches of America's "Great Communicator": Here, in
his own words, is the record of Ronald Reagan's remarkable political
career and historic eight-year presidency.
