ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact on U.S. politics and society by former U.S. president Ronald Reagan. According to the authors, Reagan's optimistic vision for the U.S. and his complex conservatism continue to inspire and vex both Republicans and Democrats 30 years after he took the oath of office. The author notes that for much of Reagan's presidency during the 1980s, he was a polarizing figure who was at the bottom of the job-approval rating throughout much of his first term. Topics include an overview of aspects of Reagan's personality, social and political views, that established him as an icon in American politics and culture.
