Yager assesses the influences that provoked Reagans transformation, beginning with the core values that he acquired during his youth and their relationship to his later political development. Throughout his lifetime, Reagans family and friends played a significant role in debating political ideas and advancing Republican arguments. Ronald Reagans Journey focuses on these important relationships as well as the intellectual influences on Reagans politics during the 1950s. In tracing Reagans political development, Yager argues that Reagans presidency cannot be fully understood and evaluated without significant attribution to the spiritual, political, and economic beliefs that he formed during his journey from Democrat to Republican.
