The Rebellion of Ronald Reagan : A History of the End of the Cold War
In his surprising new book, critically lauded author James Mann trains his keen analytical eye on Ronald Reagan and the Soviet Union, shedding new light on the hidden aspects of American foreign policy. Drawing on recent interviews and previously unavailable documents, Mann offers a new history assessing what Reagan did, and did not do, to help bring America's four-decade conflict with the U.S.S.R. to a close. Ultimately, "The Rebellion of Ronald Reagan" dispels the facile stereotypes surrounding America's fortieth president in favour of a levelheaded, cogent understanding of an often misunderstood man.
