"The Rebellion of Ronald Reagan: Revisiting Reagan's Role in the End of the Cold War" is the title of a talk by author James Mann scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Thursday, April 9, in 16 Robertson Hall.
Mann's new book, "The Rebellion of Ronald Reagan: A History of the End of the Cold War," draws on new interviews and previously unavailable documents to offer a new history of what Reagan did -- and did not do -- to help bring America's four-decade conflict with the Soviet Union to a close.
Mann is the Foreign Policy Institute Author-in-Residence at Johns Hopkins University and formerly was a senior writer-in-residence at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. He has been a writer for The Los Angeles Times, The New Haven Journal-Courier, The Washington Post, The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Baltimore Sun.
The talk is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
