Now back in print to Tie-in to the launch of his new book The Great Deformation, David Stockman's bestselling insider account of the failure of the Reagan Revolution that he had helped to invent. "A rich description of life inside the seemingly most successful Presidency of modern times... A valuable document of the American political condition." -Michael Kirsley, The New York Times
As Director of the Office of Management and Budget in the early 1980s, David Stockman was a chief architect of the Reagan Revolution,a bold plan to cut taxes and reduce the scope and cost of government. The Triumph of Politics was Stockman's frontline report of the miscalculations, manipulations, and political intrigues that led to its failure. A major publishing event and New York Times bestseller in its day, The Triumph of Politics is still startling relevant to the conduct of Washington politics today.
