On July 29, Robert Service, keynote speaker for the 2015 Hoover Institution Workshop on Totalitarian Regimes, delivered a lecture entitled “Looking at Both Sides: Why Did the Cold War End As It Did?” Service is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and a fellow of Saint Anthony’s College, Oxford. His book The End of the Cold War, which will be published in the US in November, discusses the interactions between the USSR and the US from the late 1980s to the early 1990s, with an emphasis on Ronald Reagan, George Schultz, Mikhail Gorbechev, and Vitalii Leonidovich Kataev as central figures of the period.
