Ronald Reagan was one of the most unlikely and controversial American presidents. How should we evaluate his legacy? This seminar seeks to do exactly that.

Ronald Reagan's presidency included a mix of tragedies and triumphs. The American debt climbed during his presidency, the country experienced growing inequality, and the AIDS crisis ravaged much of the American public. At the same time, Reagan triggered a renewal of American idealism and he helped to end the Cold War, which had kept the world on the edge of nuclear Armageddon for nearly fifty years. Together, we’ll explore how Reagan did it, as well as how we should assess his presidency.

Led by an expert on American history, Dr. Jeremi Suri, this seminar will explore the period of Ronald Reagan's presidency, the controversies, and his legacy.

This conversation is part of a six-part series on American Presidents with Dr. Jeremi Suri. Each session is designed as a stand-alone seminar as well as part of a six-week series.
