Mod 12 Assignment: The Reagan Revolution, and its impact on modern politics

99 unread replies.99 replies.

This assignment pivots from the presidency of Carter to that of Ronald Reagan, former actor, president of the Screen Actors’ Guild, and governor of California in the late 1960s and early 1970s. In this assignment, we’ll try to understand Reagan’s political rise to the presidency in the context of a socially turbulent and economically miserable 1970s decade. Consider the ways in which Reagan’s ascendency related to the Civil Rights Movement and Rights Revolution of the 1960s and 1970s, the Cold War with the Soviet Union, the anti-war and other college campus movements, the morphing iterations of conservatism since President Eisenhower, the failure and embarrassment of the Republican Party during President Nixon’s downfall, Hollywood and the media, Carter’s ineffective leadership, etc.
