LOS ANGELES (MMD Newswire) November 3, 2010 — President Ronald Reagan’s name is often invoked by modern politicians who celebrate the Gipper’s commitment to conservative values and foreign affairs. "The Reagan Files: The Untold Story of Reagan’s Top-Secret Efforts to Win the Cold War" by Jason Saltoun-Ebin (ISBN 1453633057), gives readers an unprecedented look at how the nation’s 40th president worked to win the war that divided the world’s two most powerful nations. Drawing on formerly top secret National Security Council meeting minutes and private letters between President Reagan and Soviet leaders, Saltoun-Ebin takes readers inside the White House Situation Room to see what it was like to be side-by-side with Reagan while he made decisions that would end the Cold War and shape the 21st Century. The book reveals President Reagan’s leadership skills, political judgment and intellectual prowess during his presidency in the 1980s. "It immediately occurred to me that these were the most important documents to have ever been released at the Reagan Library," Saltoun-Ebin said. "Finding what Reagan said and thought proved to be extremely difficult, and these documents contained Reagan’s uncensored thoughts on all areas of foreign policy."
