Laurence Jurdem

I am an independent scholar who specializes in the history of American conservatism. I am in the midst of preparing a book length study entitled Paving the Way for Reagan: The Conservative Media and the Forging of the Reagan Foreign Policy. The book discusses the influence of three politically conservative magazines and how they influenced the foreign policy ideas of Ronald Reagan and the Republican Party from 1964-1980.

On this website you will find my CV along with a variety of articles and essays that relate not only to American political history, but how the past has shaped the events we are currently experiencing. Please feel free to e-mail me with your comments and questions. Thank you for visiting my website and I look forward to hearing from you.
