Spring 2018: Age of Reagan - This course will explore the life and times of Ronald Reagan, whom many Americans regard as the greatest U.S. president of all time.  We will begin by examining Reagan’s rise from his small-town beginnings in the Midwest to his B-Movie career in Hollywood and then on to his life in politics, first in Sacramento, California and then in Washington, D.C.  Then we will examine Reagan’s domestic policies during the 1980s before turning to his foreign policies, with special emphasis on the Soviet Union and the Third World.  Students will be expected to write a 20-page research paper on a topic of their choice.
