In "Dear Mr. President...Reagan/Gorbachev and the Correspondences that Ended the Cold War", historian Jason Saltoun-Ebin sheds new light on the end of the Cold War by presenting, in many cases for the first time, the top-secret correspondence between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev that started the first day Gorbachev came to power. Saltoun-Ebin shows, through this private correspondence, that the most important reason for the end of the Cold War was simply the trust that Reagan and Gorbachev built through their letters. Although Reagan and Gorbachev at first found little to agree upon, they started the path towards the end of the Cold War by agreeing that despite their differences, they would continue to correspond. From when Gorbachev took office on March 11, 1985 till Reagan left the presidency in January 1989, the two most powerful leaders in the world exchanged over forty letters. It was this dialogue -- this decision that they could individually make a difference -- more than anything that led to the cooling of tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union and then the end of the Cold War. Trusting did not come easy for either of them. The letters presented in "Dear Mr. President..." show, once again, that the pen is mightier than the sword.

Review:

[A] rich collection of declassified letters ... gleaned from the Reagan Library concerning U.S. - Soviet relations and the end of the Cold War."-- Steven Aftergood, Secrecy News

"Did Ronald Reagan win the Cold War? Jason Saltoun-Ebin has spent a decade at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and other archives finding the original documents and oval office notes that take us as close as we are likely to come to answering one of the great questions of the 20th century." -- Richard Reeves, bestselling author of books on President's Kennedy, Nixon, and Reagan.

"An insightful collection of curated letters between two leaders that made history."-- Kirkus Reviews
