From publisher: "What emerges from this treasure trove of material [eight million highly classified documents housed within the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library] is irrefutable evidence that Reagan intended from his first days in office to bring down the Soviet Union, that he considered eliminating nuclear weapons his paramount objective, and that he -- not his subordinates -- was the principal architect of the policies that ultimately brought the Soviets to the nuclear-arms negotiating table."

"Without a common intelligence system, over which it has some influence and directive authority, the Alliance is virtually doomed to drift.... A more effective organization could be achieved by operationally linking the corresponding intelligence activities of the other NATO countries with the US theater structure, in effect creating a NATO intelligence command."

Clark comment: Although this story of Karol Wojtyla -- Pope John Paul II -- covers more than the Cold War, the "hidden history" in the title is the close cooperation and collaboration between the Pope and American intelligence. Mapother, WIR 16.1, notes that the Pope's role in the final years of the Cold War "was a unique demonstration of religious conviction, international intelligence, and political shrewdness."

From abstract: The Soviet war scare of the 1980s "had a profound influence on [U.S. President] Reagan's thinking about nuclear war, Kremlin fears, and Soviet–American relations that led him to seek a new détente with Moscow and the end of the Cold War through diplomacy rather than confrontation."
