Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. “Human Rights, Foreign Policy, and Ronald Reagan”

Firing Line Videos, Hoover Institution, taped on October 16, 1986, uploaded to YouTube on March 3, 2015.

Guest: Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.


An amazingly good-tempered show on the Reagan Administration’s policies, human rights, and foreign policy given that there was a time when William F. Buckley Jr. and his guest, the widely acknowledged dean of American liberalism, Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., were not on speaking terms.
