dc.descriptionIn the final years of the cold war, U.S. President Ronald Reagan and Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev undertook a number of summit meetings with the goal of reducing, and ultimately eliminating, arsenals of nuclear weapons. The first of these summits, held in Geneva, failed to result in serious progress, with neither power willing to make major concessions. Despite the setback at Geneva and a diplomatic spat over the Daniloff-Zakharov espionage case, President Reagan remained determined to press forward in talks with the Russians. The two superpowers agreed to meet again in Reykjavik the following year; however some observers wondered whether it was wise for Reagan to attend, arguing that recent events had weakened the United States’ negotiating position. In the months leading up to the summit, host Peter Krogh sits down with Zbigniew Brzezinski, National Security Advisor to President Carter, to discuss Reykjavik and the perils of superpower summitry.en
