Reagan/Gorbachev: Did They End the Cold War Forever?

The Harold and Ruth Newman World Beyond Tomorrow Series. Organized by New-York Historical Society. Discount on tickets for members of the Czech Center Club.

As the Cold War approached its dramatic climax late in the 1980s, two unique men emerged as the respective leaders of the world's great superpowers: Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev. Sharing a complicated relationship, their leadership ushered in a new era. In this program, more than 20 years after the end of the Cold War, experts discuss how and why they came together, and how they changed the world. As President Obama moves forward with "resetting" relations after a long period of decline, we look at lessons learned from the remarkable achievements of Reagan and Gorbachev and how they can inform our future.

Please note: During the New-York Historical Society's major renovation project (from April 2010 – November 2011) the Bernard and Irene Schwartz Distinguished Speakers Series will be presented at the New York Society for Ethical Culture at 2 West 64th Street at Central Park West.
