About the book

This collection of heartfelt tributes and post-Presidential remarks captures the legacy of the fortieth President and invokes the spirit of those significant years by revisiting the challenges, victories, struggles and defeats that he faced in the course of two administrations. His inspirational remarks, from his Farewell Address to the Nation in January 1989 to his moving Letter to the American People in November 1994, in which he acknowledged that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, reiterate the principles he stood for as President. From his Address to the Oxford Union Society, in which he reprimands England and "a Europe moving toward union" for "refrain[ing] from action" in Bosnia, to his Remarks to the Captive Nations Week Conference, in which he underscores the importance of keeping our commitments to Taiwan, his post-Presidential speeches examine and pronounce upon the political developments in the United States and abroad since he left office.

The never-before-published tributes, written by more than forty world leaders and prominent public figures -- including the four other living U.S. Presidents, Mikhail Gorbachev, Margaret Thatcher, George Will, Colin Powell and Billy Graham -- describe, often in moving detail, their greatest memories of the fortieth President. Their anecdotes and reflections conjure up his greatest attributes, from his "soaring sense of possibilities" (George Will), to his "courage to act on principle and take the heat" (Robert Dole), to his "indomitable faith in the promise of freedom" (Jack Kemp) and "in the greatness of our country" (Henry Kissinger). In so doing, they truly capture his legacy.
