ABOUT REAGAN AT REYKJAVIK

Ambassador Adelman gives insights into the character and leadership of Ronald Reagan. He describes the 1986 summit cliffhanger in a “you-are-there manner,” enhanced by the fact that he was there. The story itself is gripping, as the Reykjavik summit was something out of an Agatha Christie thriller—two vivid characters meet over a weekend on a desolate and windswept island in a reputedly-haunted house, with rain lashing against its windowpanes. There, in such a weird setting, the two most powerful men on earth experience the most amazing things imaginable.
