PUBLISHERRandom House, Inc.
CITYNew York, NY

This book chronicles the efforts of U.S. President Ronald Reagan and Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev that led to a peaceful conclusion to the Cold War. By using official documents, interviews, and memoirs of persons involved in both administrations, the book provides a balanced view of the two men’s political maneuvers between 1981 and 1988 and illuminates the complexity of the relationship between the two leaders. In 15 chapters, the book recounts various events, meetings, and proposals between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, focusing on the politics of the decade, especially the many nuclear arms control debates and agreements. The author’s former position as a diplomat and ambassador to the Soviet Union allows him to provide a detailed view of the intricate politics between the U.S. and the Soviet Union during the 1980s as well as the ways in which international organizations and developments helped facilitate negotiations between the two countries.
