Ken Adelman – ‘Reagan at Reykjavik’
Presidential aide Ken Adelman sat at Ronald Reagan’s knees, literally, during the hastily arranged superpower summit in Reykjavik, Iceland. He talks with Steve Bertrand on Books about the unscripted and sometimes even wacky summit. Reagan and Gorbachev nearly agreed to eliminated nuclear weapons but failed. Adelman says they succeeded in beginning the end of the Cold War.
