Did Ronald Reagan Win the Cold War? Jason Saltoun-Ebin has spent nine years at the 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 twentieth century.
The Reagan Files provides fascinating new material about the decision-making process of the Reagan presidency in the final years of the Cold War. The book takes the reader through the original letters, meetings and policy documents that chronicle the era, compiled with great energy and dedication by Jason Saltoun-Ebin.
Jason Saltoun-Ebin has painstakingly assembled an invaluable collection of documents that provide new insight into the quest for national security during the Reagan years. Bravo!
I received the hard copy of The Reagan Files yesterday -- thanks so much! The book and the website are invaluable for understanding both President Reagan and the era. ...
While writing my first book on Reagan entailed divining information from scraps here and there, this time around I have the good fortune to have scholars like yourself and Tom Blanton, Svetlana Savranskaya, and Vlad Zubok who have done so much to make primary documents widely available. Thank you!

“Your web site is invaluable. I've used it innumerable times in my own research. I am the author of “The Presidency of Ronald Reagan,” which will be published next year by the University Press of Kansas. Your web site made it possible for me to reduce the amount of time I spent copying files at the Reagan Library and also to have ready access to some documents that I might have missed in my own research. I have quite a few graduate students working on Reagan topics, and all of them know about your web site.”
