520    Drawing on new interviews and previously unavailable 
       documents, Mann finally answers the troubling questions 
       about Reagan's actual role in the crumbling of Soviet 
       power; and concludes that by recognizing the significance 
       of Gorbachev, Reagan helped bring the Cold War to a close.
