Ronald Reagan
Decisions of Greatness
Martin Anderson and Annelise Anderson
Ronald Reagan’s Cold War strategy was well established
in his first year in office and did not change throughout his
presidency. It was to make absolutely sure in the minds of the
Soviets that they too would be destroyed in a nuclear war—even
as Reagan sought an alternative through strategic defense to
make nuclear missiles obsolete and thus eliminate the possibility
of an all-out nuclear war. This book offers new perspectives on
Ronald Reagan’s primary accomplishment as president—per-
suading the Soviets to reduce their nuclear arsenals and end the
Cold War. It details how he achieved this success and in the
process explains why Americans consider Reagan one of our
greatest presidents. The authors examine the decisions Reagan
made during his presidency that made his success possible and
review Reagan’s critical negotiations with Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev—ending with the 1988 Moscow Summit that effec-
tively ended the Cold War. They present Gorbachev’s thoughts
on Reagan as a great man and a great president 20 years after
he left office. But ultimately, they reveal the depth of Reagan’s
vision of a world safe from nuclear weapons, painting a clear
portrait of a Cold Warrior who saw the possibility of moving
beyond that war.
Martin Anderson is a former assistant to the president for
policy development, where he worked with Ronald Reagan on
a daily basis on policy issues. Annelise Anderson was associate
director of the office of management and budget, where she was
responsible for the budgets of five cabinet departments and 40
other agencies. They are recognized experts on the writing and
speeches of Ronald Reagan and have coauthored several best-
selling books that highlight the existence of Ronald Reagan’s
thousands of handwritten radio commentaries, letters, speeches,

‘Iffat al Thunayan
An Arabian Queen
Joseph A. Kéchichian
‘Iffat Al Thunayan, spouse of the late King Faysal bin ‘Abdul
‘Aziz Al Sa’ud (r. 1964–1975), was a pillar of the ruling Al Sa’ud
family. Born and raised in Istanbul to an uprooted Sa’udi family,
she returned to the Kingdom in 1932, a few months before the
founder ruler, ‘Abdul ‘Aziz bin ‘Abdul Rahman, reinstituted the
monarchy. ‘Iffat used her influence to infiltrate many progressive
ideas into the Kingdom, including significant strides in educa-
tion for both boys and girls as well as major advances in health
care. An astute observer and a doer par excellence, Queen ‘Iffat
left her mark on the contemporary history of the Al Sa’ud, as
she protected and empowered her kin. She raised a formidable
family, listened carefully, guided conversations as necessary,
spoke with moderation, and recommended policies to her
husband and, after he was assassinated, to her brothers-in-law
who succeeded him. A politically conscious spouse, Queen ‘Iffat
played the leading role in Sa’udi female society, attended many
state functions, and received female state guests. She traveled ex-
tensively, especially in Europe and the United States, supported
myriad charities, and cajoled many to invest in the Kingdom.
Universally respected, many people sought her advice for she
shared her ambitions and ideas to benefit the entire country.
Based on multiple interviews conducted with members of the
al-Faysal family, friends, and acquaintances of the late queen,
Joseph A. Kéchichian offers the first political biography of a
Sa’udi monarch’s spouse. This work is an important resource
for social scientists and political analysts, and of interest to all
who wish to learn about Arab women in general, and Sa’udi
women in particular.
Joseph A. Kéchichian is the author of 10 books, including
Faysal: Saudi Arabia’s King for All Seasons, Legal and Political
Reforms in Saudi Arabia, Power and Succession in Arab Monar-
chies, and Succession in Saudi Arabia.

The Congress Movement


ICU, ANC, CP & Congress Alliance
Sylvia Neame
This study of the development of the national liberation movement in South Africa is in stark contrast to the frequent depictions of
the history of the ANC by leading academics as fragmented, fractured, and discontinuous. Not only does Sylvia Naeme’s analyses
disprove the belief that the ANC’s development has been episodic, several of the conclusions drawn point to its essential inner co-
herence. Crucial to the development of the congress movement was the search for an alliance strategy that would ensure the ANC its
central role. Particularly striking, and essentially new, is the depiction of the various alliance partners—including the Industrial and
Commercial Workers’ Union (ICU), the Communist Party, and the South African Congress of Trade Unions—and their complicated
interaction. The research, based on extensive primary and secondary sources including some 80 interviews dating back to the early
1960s, uniquely combines narrative and analysis. The Congress Movement invites the reader to engage in the fascinating develop-
ment of the national liberation movement in South Africa in its formative period and uncovers its outstanding continuities as well as
the considerable range of its methods.
Sylvia Neame is a long-standing member of the Congress movement who spent several years in jail during apartheid. She has a doc-
torate of philosophy in the field of African history and is a former teacher and researcher at Leipzig University.
