Reagan and Gorbachev

By Michael Mandelbaum and Strobe Talbott
Vintage, 1987
190 pp. $5.95

An analysis, completed in early November 1986, of how Reagan and Gorbachev, notwithstanding their innovative rhetoric, are limited by the enduring structure of Soviet-American competition. The authors, accomplished observers of nuclear diplomacy, are pessimistic insofar as they treat much of the Reykjavik vision as utopian reverie or pure propaganda but optimistic in predicting generations more of managed deterrence.
