Reagan and the Gorbachev Revolution: Perceiving the End of Threat
Barbara Farnham examines President Ronald Reagan's reevaluation of the Soviet threat in light of the policy changes instituted by Mikhail Gorbachev. This presents a puzzle, because the psychological literature strongly suggests that people alter their central beliefs with great difficulty, if at all. Farnham describes Reagan's decision-making characteristics that allowed him to reevaluate his perception of threat when many others did not.
