Description
Brilliantly reconstructing some of their most dramatic encounters, Aldous draws on recently declassified documents and extensive oral history to dismantle the popular conception of Reagan-Thatcher diplomacy. His startling conclusion that the weakest link in the Atlantic Alliance of the 1980s was the association between the two principal actors will mark an important contribution to our understanding of the twentieth century.
