Soviet Reassessment of Ronald Reagan, 1985-1988
William D. Jackson analyzes Soviet assessments of the Reagan administration in the period 1985-1988 as revealed in recent memoirs by key Soviet officials and other Soviet documents. He concludes that a shift from the "outflanking" strategy aimed at the U.S. originally embraced by Gorbachev to a strategy of conciliatory engagement was closely linked to shifting assessments of the Reagan administration on the part of Gorbachev and his key advisers.
