Nicholas Wapshott talked about his book Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher: A Political Marriage, published by Sentinel. In his book he analyses the personal and politcal relationship between President Ronald Reagan and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Their tenures overlapped eight years and the two leaders were close allies who worked together to promote lower taxes, deregulation, free trade, and an aggressive stance against the Soviet Union. But drawing on interviews as well as recently declassified private letters and telephone calls, Mr. Wapshott posits that they had a closer, more personal, but also more argumentative as well as supportive relationship. He responded to questions from members of the audience. close
