A City, A President, and the Speech That Ended the Cold War

Unknown - 2010
Rate this:
Recreates Ronald Reagan's historic June 1987 speech at the Brandenburg Gate and his famous challenge to Mikhail Gorbachev. "Tear down this wall" stands with FDR's "The only thing we have to fear" and JFK's "Ask not what your country..." as among the most famous words uttered by modern presidents. This account of how Reagan arrived at this moment, and what followed from it, is based on interviews with numerous former Reagan Administration officials, journalists, historians, and eye-witnesses to the speech. Drawing on primary source material never before seen, including recently declassified State Department documents and East German records of the President's trip, Ratnesar places Reagan's speech in historical context.
