The British style of American political studies is very much on display in this book of essays by an Anglo-American team. This style is long on description and on historical narrative, which is especially suitable for students who may well have not read the newspapers regularly during the Reagan era. Of the 11 chapters, four are about various public policies, two are overviews, three cover President Reagan's relations with the three branches of government, and two--responding to Reagan's own strongly ideological style--discuss his political agenda and its consequences for the management of the Republican party and public opinion. This book is particularly recommended for readers who need a well-informed summary of conventional wisdom on the Reagan years. Chapter end-notes will satisfactorily lead those who need more information into the detailed literature and relevant memoirs. -N. W. Polsby, University of California, Berkeley
