The Long Shadow

Anyone taken a stab at Sean Wilentz' Age of Reagan yet?  Apparently, he tries to put some perspective on the events that have shaped this country the past 35 years, taking his survey back to 1974 when Reagan rose to prominence within the Republican Party.  Here is Douglas Brinkley sounding off on the book.

This book is not to be confused with Steven Hayward's hagiography.
