Abstract:

& ldquo;A first-rate work of insider his & shy;tory ... A monumental accomplishment. & rdquo; & mdash; National Review The election that changed everything: Craig Shirley & rsquo;s masterful account of the 1980 presidential campaign reveals how a race judged & ldquo;too close to call & rdquo; as late as Election Day became a Reagan landslide & mdash;and altered the course of history. To write Rendezvous with Destiny, Shirley gained unprecedented access to 1980 campaign files and interviewed more than 150 insiders & mdash;from Reagan & rsquo;s closest advisers and family members to Jimmy Carter himself. His gripping account follows Reagan & rsquo;s unlikely path from his bitter defeat on the floor of the 1976 Republican convention, through his underreported & ldquo;wilderness years, & rdquo; through grueling primary fights in which he knocked out several Republican heavyweights, through an often-nasty general election campaign complicated by the presence of a third-party candidate (not to mention the looming shadow of Ted Kennedy), to Reagan & rsquo;s astounding victory on Election Night in 1980. Shirley & rsquo;s years of intensive research have enabled him to relate countless untold stories & mdash;including, at long last, the solution to one of the most enduring mysteries in politics: just how Reagan & rsquo;s campaign got hold of Carter & rsquo;s debate briefing books.
