Hey Brion — interesting course! Do you think you could do a quick writeup on Reagan? You mentioned him a few times and it might be useful to discuss him since his legacy is being thrown around a lot in the current presidential race. Any sources are also welcomed!
No write-up that I know of, but some things to look into are the Contra scandal, involvement in the Afghanistan war, his dealings with Kruschev, support of gun control measures and civil asset forfeiture.
