President Reagan and the World


Did Ronald Reagan and his policies engineer the defeat of international communism, the breakup of the Soviet Union, and the elimination of decades of nuclear confrontation? Or, did the Reagan presidency simply benefit from decades of bipartisan military, economic, and political opposition to Soviet policies? Both positions are explored by Reagan aides and leading scholars of the period.
