H5F: Rick Perlstein – The Invisible Bridge: The Fall of Nixon and the Rise of Reagan

Jun 3, 2016 – It’s History in Five Friday, presented by Simon & Schuster — check them out at Facebook.com/HistoryInFive. `

This coming Sunday, June 5th, America will mark the anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s death in 2004 at the age of 93. Rick Perlstein — best-selling author of Nixonland — looks at how the destruction of the Watergate scandal shook America to its foundations, and seemed to create a new paradigm of a smaller America — only to see the Reagan Revolution’s Morning in America dawn a short six years later, following Nixon’s resignation, Gerald Ford’s pardon, and Jimmy Carter’s malaise.

The Invisible Bridge: The Fall of Nixon and the Rise of Reagan traces how the 37th president and the 40th, are connected by history. You can learn more about today’s author at RickPerlstein.com, or by following @RickPerlstein on Twitter.
