Read full description of the books Rendezvous with Destiny:From the dust jacket: "Perhaps the exact time history took a distinct turn in policy occurred at 11:42 A.M., January 20, 1981, when, with a resounding, "So Help me God!" Ronald Reagan pledged to uphold the constitution and became our fortieth President. His rise to that moment is astonishing. It began in October, 1964, when as Co-chairman of California Citizens for Goldwater, he gave a masterful speech, "A Time for Choosing", which he delivered over national television. Ronald Reagan ended his talk with "You and I have a rendezvous with destiny", which we have chosen for the title of this book. The rest is history. From that speech he rose to the Governorship of California and then to the Presidency of the United States. In this volume are the words of that first speech, his Inaugural address (Jan. 20, 1981) and his triumphant speech before a joint session of Congress on a program for economic recovery, (Feb. 18, 1981). This is a book for the home."
Read information about the authorRonald Wilson Reagan was the 40th President of the United States (1981–1989) and the 33rd Governor of California (1967–1975). Born in Illinois, Reagan moved to Los Angeles in the 1930s, where he became an actor, president of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), and a spokesman for General Electric. Reagan became involved in politics during his work for G.E. and switched from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party in 1962. After delivering a rousing speech in support of Barry Goldwater's presidential candidacy in 1964, he was persuaded to seek the California Governorship, winning two years later and again in 1970. He was defeated in his run for the Republican presidential nomination in 1968 as well as 1976, but won both the nomination and election in 1980.
