I'm a big fan of reading about the presidencies of our various presidents--Both Democratic and Republican. I have a series which is called the American Presidency series--Each book focuses on a different president, for example, one is the Presidency of Lyndon B. Johnson by Melvin Small. This series is very objective, reads like a history book and focuses only on the Presidents' years in office; they're not biographies. The series covers every president up to and including George H.W. Bush--except Reagan.
I've looked for books that are objective and focus solely on Reagan's presidency, however I haven't been able to find any that are either biographies, which are about his whole life, or books that either are biased toward him or incredibly biased against him.
I was wondering if you guys could recommend me for a good, objective book focusing on Reagan's years in the White House? And I don't mean the Reagan diaries or anything written from his perspective or his friends--I mean a work written by like a historian, a third party.

As for books about the gipper:
The Wit & Wisdom of Ronald Reagan
by James C. Humes
The Reagan I Knew
by William F. Buckley, Jr.
Ronald Reagan: How an Ordinary Man Became an Extraordinary Leader
by Dinesh D'Souza
Also worth a read are: Reagan in His Own Hand and his diaries he kept while he was president.
