The Man Who Sold the World, by William Kleinknecht, a crime correspondent for The Newark Star-Ledger, is a different kind of book. For Kleinknecht, Reagan is an obvious enemy of the common people, arguably the least patriotic president in American history.

Kleinknecht argues that Regan’s presidency actually devastated America, especially Main Street America and he explains that all that has gone wrong in the US during the recent years can be traced back to Regan’s policies.

Since Ronald Reagan left office-and particularly after his death-his shadow has loomed large over American politics . This carefully calibrated image is complete fiction, argues award-winning journalist William Kleinknecht.

Since Ronald Reagan left office-and particularly after his death-his shadow has loomed large over American politics: Republicans and many Democrats have waxed nostalgic, extolling the Republican tradition he embodied, the optimism he espoused, and his abilities as a communicator. The Reagan presidency was epoch shattering, but not-as his propagandists would have it-because it invigorated private enterprise or made America feel strong again.

Walmart 9781568584102. An award-winning journalist shatters the myth of Ronald Reagan. Nation Books, PublicAffairs. Another book about Reagan's legacy; this one joins the somewhat more slowly growing accumulation on the left that attempts to set the record straight. This has some good material, and is focused almost solely on his domestic policies, but I find the weaknesses overcome the strengths at times.

As William Kleinknecht makes plain in his clear-eyed jeremiad, The Man Who Sold the World, this desperate, threadbare fiction is one among many fallacies attached to the myth of Reagan’s presidential greatness

As William Kleinknecht makes plain in his clear-eyed jeremiad, The Man Who Sold the World, this desperate, threadbare fiction is one among many fallacies attached to the myth of Reagan’s presidential greatness. The New Deal and its forerunner the Progressive movement, he observes, hewed to the principles of the Enlightenment, the idea of a society based on reason and democracy. Whereas the legion of Reagan-minted untruths about our public life replaced Enlightenment thinking with a corrupted romanticism that portrays free-market purism as an article of religious faith.

Since Ronald Reagan left office—and particularly after his death—his shadow has loomed large over American politics: Republicans and many Democrats have waxed nostalgic, extolling the Republican tradition he embodied, the optimism he espoused, and his abilities as a communicator.

This carefully calibrated image is complete fiction, argues award-winning journalist William Kleinknecht. The Reagan presidency was epoch shattering, but not—as his propagandists would have it—because it invigorated private enterprise or made America feel strong again. His real legacy was the dismantling of an eight-decade period of reform in which working people were given an unprecedented sway over our politics, our economy, and our culture. Reagan halted this almost overnight.

In the tradition of Thomas Frank's What's the Matter with Kansas?, Kleinknecht explores middle America—starting with Reagan's hometown of Dixon, Illinois—and shows that as the Reagan legend grows, his true legacy continues to decimate middle America.

Totally fascinating book -- so many of the events and trends covered in this book are still significant, and frightening. To better understand today, read this book about the 80's. And cry!
OCARO
if you've ever wanted to know how someone like this empty suit, someone utterly lacking in decency or intellect, got in a position to wield so much influence on your life and literally everyone else's, here's the book. Read it, and maybe you won't let it happen again.

Tediously written, not a casual read. Lots of information.

Should be required reading in jr. high and again in High school. Maybe if Americas Public school system was truly honest about our Government our Nation wouldn't be in the grips of the Elite Globalists whose only loyalty is to the greed for power and wealth.

If only more people knew the extent of the damage this man did to our country! I don't have time to write a long review, but this book takes an exhaustive look at every spectrum of the domestic policies that this laissez-faire, trickle-down, invisible hand of the free market president unleashed on Americans. And it doesn't even touch on Iran-Contra or the multiple despotic dictators he propped up or supported in Central America.

The guy obviously doesn't like Reagan, so know that going in. He rags on Reagan for
never going back to his home town in Illinios. It's like "is that all you can come up with?" But other stuff was interesting.
Glad I read it. You might try to find the used copy; it aint worth the price of a new one.

Very interesting read, I recomend to all republicans.
Reagan should have stayed in Hollywood. This book casts a revealing light on the darling of the right!
