Another look at Ronald Reagan This time Baier looks at RWR through the microscope of how he and Gorbachev through their personal relationship put a nail in the Soviet Union s coffin Reagan relegated Communism to the ash heap of history as he had hoped he would read by the author, it was another of my walk the dogs audiobooks.
SUBJECTIVE READER REVIEW WITH PLOT SPOILERS FOLLOWS I m primarily a fiction reader and exclusively a fiction writer, but Three Days in Moscow intrigued me because it proved to be a telescope into Reagan s incredibly effective dealings with the Soviet Union My entire Goldeneye Series, including 14 novels, takes place during Reagan s first term and there is much synergy between Will Kavanagh and The Gipper And guess what, I got it exactly right so far as Reagan s pivotal focus, his management style and the things he felt most important To sum it up, Ronald Wilson Reagan believed in the exercise of free will, and anything unnatural that precluded that was public enemy number one The Cold War wasn t an arms race to Reagan, but instead was a I was in my mid twenties in the 80s, living in England so I figured Ronald Reagan was a doddering, simplistic geriatric madman bent on destroying the world We in England protested the nuclear cruise missiles at RAF Greenham Common and thought Reagan was going to bring about World War III I ve softened however and this book helped me appreciate the Reagan I didn t know He was smarter than I thought, a great writer, and believed in the power of liberty and capitalism as ways of bringing people out of poverty In the light of some of our recent presidents, Reagan seems even better than he was I still don t appreciate him tearing the solar panels off the White House roof and perhaps setting back renewable energy 20 years and I felt nauseous during the Iran Contra scandals but I do appreciate the deft hand he used on the crumbling Soviet Union and his courage and the
