Reagan at Reykjavik : forty-eight hours that ended the Cold War by Kenneth L Adelman( Book )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 589 libraries worldwide
"A dramatic account of the historic 1986 Reagan-Gorbachev summit in Iceland--the turning point in the Cold War--by President Reagan's arms control director, a key player in that world-changing event. In October 1986, Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev met for a forty-eight-hour summit in Reykjavik, Iceland. Planned as a short gathering to outline future talks, the meeting quickly turned to major international issues, including SDI ("Star Wars") and the possibility of eliminating all nuclear weapons. Both men were at the height of their powers, and they had a rare opportunity to move toward peace. The meeting laid the groundwork for the most sweeping arms accord in history, adopted the following year, and the end of the Soviet Union half a decade later. From his position as a participant and his skill as a historian, Adelman is able to reveal the motivations, relationships, and conversations that led to the breakthroughs. Scrupulously researched and based on now-declassified documents, Reagan at Reykjavik tells the gripping tale of that weekend, and provides an honest and up-close portrait of Reagan at one of his finest and most challenging moments"--From publisher description
Shakespeare in charge : the bard's guide to leading and succeeding on the business stage by Norman R Augustine( Book )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 324 libraries worldwide
"In Shakespeare in Charge, Norman Augustine and Ken Adelman show how Shakespeare's shrewd understanding of palace politics and the strategies of warfare can just as easily be applied to the twists and turns of the corporate world." "Here Falstaff meets Victoria's Secret, Cleopatra tangles with the Internet, and Hamlet wrestles with AT & T. Each act concludes with Acting Lessons that present the essence of Shakespeare's wisdom." "More than just an entertaining guide to a new aspect of Shakespeare's remarkable legacy, Shakespeare in Charge is full of penetrating advice about leadership in a changing world."--Jacket

In October 1986, Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev met for a forty-eight-hour summit in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Scrupulously researched and based on now-declassified information, Reagan at Reykjavik tells the gripping tale of this weekend that changed the world. Filled with illustrative accounts of the private discussions between Reagan and his team, Ken Adelman provides an honest and up-close portrait of President Reagan at one of his finest and most challenging moments
