In Reagan at Reykjavik, former arms control director Ken
Adelman, gives readers a dramatic, first-hand account of
the Reagan-Gorbachev summit--the weekend that proved
key to ending the Cold War. Based on now-declassified
notes of Reagan’s secret bargaining with Gorbachev,
Adelman tells the gripping tale of the weekend in
Reykjavik as only an insider can. Through his relationship
with Reagan, and a front-row seat to Reykjavik and
other key moments in Reagan’s presidency, Reagan at
Reykjavik provides an honest portrayal of the man at one
of his finest and most challenging moments.
Ken Adelman was President Reagan’s arms control
director from 1983 to the end of 1987, including at Reykjavik, as he accompanied
President Reagan at three superpower summits in all. He has also served as
a U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and Assistant to the Secretary of
Defense. After leaving government, he taught Shakespeare at Georgetown
University and George Washington University, and National Security Studies at
Johns Hopkins and Georgetown Universities. He is the author of several books,
including Shakespeare in Charge and The Defense Revolution.
