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.
