Reviews

Praise for A Pope and a President"Kengor breaks new ground. He shows the depth of [John Paul II and Reagan's] friendship (including secret letters shuttled to Rome by New Jersey Democrat Peter Rodino) starting only weeks after both men survived assassination attempts." --World magazine"This book superbly captures and perfectly portrays the profound depth of the bond between John Paul II and Ronald Reagan. This is key. You cannot understand why Soviet communism collapsed unless you have a good grasp of just how extraordinarily deep was the bond that existed between those two great leaders of the 20th century. . . . There is a great deal of important and interesting information packed into this very well researched work. It makes a reader appreciate just how fortunate we were to have this particular pope and this particular president at that point in history." --Washington Times

"Excellent . . . Dr. Kengor's book is extraordinary in that he is brave enough to trace the importance of religious faith in the story of communism's downfall. . . . A historical tome that is not only detailed, informative, and educational, but also inspiring and encouraging." --The Imaginative Conservative
Praise for Paul Kengor"No Reagan biographer or scholar knows Ronald Reagan and conservatism like Paul Kengor." --Michael Reagan"[Kengor] has written the most exhaustive and definitive account of Communism's twentieth-century assault on America to date." --Townhall"Mr. Kengor's research is prodigious, his analysis keen and insightful, his writing clear, and his work distinguished. His command of the Reagan legacy is incomparable." --Tony Dolan, chief speechwriter and special assistant to President Reagan"Kengor makes clear just how central the defeat of the Soviet Union was to Reagan's personal project." --National Review"Combines great story-telling with his commitment to scholarly detail." --Peter Schweizer, bestselling author of Reagan's War"[Kengor provides] more fascinating and never-before-reported details about how Ronald Reagan succeeded than any other Cold War historian. . . . Kengor somehow got his hands on more secret documents than the KGB." --American Thinker"Kengor has unearthed eye-popping new information that left me amazed." --Fred Barnes, Weekly Standard"Provides authoritative insight into Reagan's campaign to destroy Soviet Communism." --Richard Pipes, professor of history, emeritus, Harvard University"Kengor assembles a wealth of material." --National Catholic Reporter"There are few historians who are closer students of the Reagan message, his thoughts, his utterances, and his convictions than Paul Kengor." --William J. Bennett, President Reagan's secretary of education
