a€œA first-rate work of insider hisAstory . . . A monumental accomplishment.a€ a€”National Review The election that changed everything: Craig Shirleya€™s masterful account of the 1980 presidential campaign reveals how a race judged a€œtoo close to calla€ as late as Election Day became a Reagan landslidea€”and altered the course of history. To write Rendezvous with Destiny, Shirley gained unprecedented access to 1980 campaign files and interviewed more than 150 insidersa€”from Reagana€™s closest advisers and family members to Jimmy Carter himself. His gripping account follows Reagana€™s unlikely path from his bitter defeat on the floor of the 1976 Republican convention, through his underreported a€œwilderness years, a€ 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 Reagana€™s astounding victory on Election Night in 1980. Shirleya€™s years of intensive research have enabled him to relate countless untold storiesa€”including, at long last, the solution to one of the most enduring mysteries in politics: just how Reagana€™s campaign got hold of Cartera€™s debate briefing books.a€œWhat emerges, a€ Cannon wrote, a€œis the seeming paradox of a candidate who can outdebate rivals in candidate forums and outmaneuver contentious reporters in press conferences, yet still kindle questions about his intellectual capacities.
