Please join us for a conversation and book signing with Marc Ambinder on his latest book, The Brink: President Reagan and the Nuclear War Scare of 1983 (Publish Date: July 10, 2018). This event is free to attend; however, books must be purchased in the Reagan Library Museum Store to receive signature. Books may be pre-purchased during the reservation process.

Marc Ambinder’s The Brink tells the incredible story of  the “Able Archer ’83” war game that triggered a tense, brittle period of nuclear brinkmanship between the United States and the former Soviet Union. With astonishing and clarifying new details, he recounts the scary series of close encounters that tested the limits of ordinary humans and powerful leaders alike.

From geopolitics in Moscow and Washington, to sweat- caked soldiers fighting in the trenches of the Cold War, to high-stakes war games across NATO and the Warsaw Pact,
The Brink serves as the definitive intelligence, nuclear, and national security history of one of the most precarious times in recent memory.

Marc Ambinder is a teacher at USC’s Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism. Ambinder was a White House correspondent for National Journal, the politics editor of The Atlantic, and an on-air analyst and consultant for CBS News. He spent four years at ABC News, covering politics and policy.


Although registration for this event is closed, this is a free event and everyone is still welcome to attend both the lecture and book signing (books must be purchased at the Reagan Library Museum Store to receive  signature). Please join us at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 10th!
