From the back cover: "An irreverent look backward at the Reagan Era.
THE CLOTHES HAVE NO EMPEROR is Paul Slansky's scathingly funny, no-holds-barred chronicle of the 1980s-a stunning scrapbook of implausible events, outrageous statements, incredible anecdotes, and astounding photographs; a cast of improbable characters ranging from Ed Meese to Michael Jackson, from Geraldo Rivera to Ollie North; and starring a famous ex-actor in the biggest role of his career.
From the day ketchup was declared a vegetable, to the day Dan Quayle was declared vice-president, this is history with a bad attitude: a funny, fascinating look at the photo opportunities, the sound bites, the scandals, the 'spin' that made the Reagan era special."

Great for trivia buffs. It is a chronological narrative with pictures of the 1980's. It is billed as "an irreverent look backward oof the Reagan Era".
