"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

The dramatic, firsthand account of the historic 1986 Reagan-Gorbachev summit in Iceland--the definitive weekend that was the key turning point in the Cold War--by President Reagan's arms control director, Ken Adelman. In October 1986, Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev met for a forty-eight-hour summit in Reykjavik, Iceland. Planned as a short, inconsequential gathering to outline future talks, the meeting quickly turned to major international issues, including the strategic defense initiative and the possibility of eliminating all nuclear weapons--negotiations that laid the groundwork for the most sweeping arms accord in history the following year. 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

A dramatic account of the historic 1986 Reagan-Gorbachev summit in Iceland'the turning point in the Cold War'by Ken Adelman, Reagan's arms control director and a key player in that weekend's world-changing events 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 led to negotiations and concessions that neither side had predicted'and laid the groundwork for the most sweeping arms accord in history, adopted the following year, and the end of the Soviet Union a half decade later. From his position as a participant in these historic events, Ken Adelman is able to reveal the motivations, relationships, and conversations that led to the summit's breakthroughs. His analysis as both a participant and historian provides an invaluable perspective on this uniquely significant episode. Scrupulously researched and based on now-declassified documents, Reagan at Reykjavik tells the gripping tale of the weekend that changed the world. Adelman provides an honest, laser-etched portrait of President Reagan at one of his finest and most challenging moments'and, indisputably, one of the most significant triumphs of his presidency
