Simon & Schuster, 2004 - History - 177 pages

A portrait of a president whose eternally optimistic spirit guided his life and leadership, Ronald Reagan Remembered captures in words, pictures, and video the private world and public presidency of a beloved national icon.

When former President Ronald Reagan died on June 5, 2004, at the age of ninety-three, the nation paid its respects and, over the next days, recalled the life of the fortieth president and anticipated his legacy. Using the resources of CBS News, Ronald Reagan Remembered provides a full record of Reagan's life and assesses his place in American history. Three of CBS News's most respected journalists -- Dan Rather, Lesley Stahl, and Mike Wallace -- offer original essays drawing on their personal experience of Reagan in action. Many of the speeches of the president known as The Great Communicator are collected on the special full-length DVD -- including the address to the nation after the Challenger disaster in 1986 and the 1987 speech at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin -- along with classic interviews with Reagan and his family. Ronald Reagan Remembered also includes Bob Schieffer's insightful Face the Nation commentary "Lessons from Ronald Reagan," a touching tribute by Reagan's daughter Patti Davis, and obituaries and analysis from the best of the print media, including the Los Angeles Times and The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and Time and Newsweek magazines. Illustrated with more than 80 photographs, Ronald Reagan Remembered is a comprehensive and thoughtful keepsake of one of the most remarkable of all American lives.
