Synopsis

Historian Jason Saltoun-Ebin has spent over ten years scouring the holdings of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and filing hundreds of Freedom of Information Act requests to assemble the most complete collection possible of the inner-workings of President Reagan’s top-secret foreign policy. The Reagan Files (Vol. 2): Inside the National Security Council," presents in many cases for the first time over 100 recently declassified meeting minutes from President Reagan’s National Security Council. The documents cover all areas of U.S. foreign policy during the Reagan administration, shedding important light on Reagan’s approach to the Middle East, Central America, Africa, Europe, and most importantly, the Soviet Union. Although the documentary record of the Reagan years is still incomplete, Saltoun-Ebin has assembled an invaluable set of documents that take us one step closer to accurately explaining the Reagan years. A “must-have” for any student of U.S. foreign relations. "The Reagan Files" is a stunning account of what it was like to be inside the White House with President Reagan while he made some of the most important decisions of the 20th century.
