Abstract : In October 1986, after months of personal correspondence, U.S. President Ronald Reagan and Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev met in Reykjavik, Iceland to discuss the reduction of conventional forces in Europe as well as the possibility of a nuclear-free world. Although no concrete guidelines were worked out, a marked change in the attitudes of the two great superpowers was readily apparent. In addition to Gorbachev's continued willingness to make fundamental changes in the Soviet Union, this summit showed that President Reagan was now ready to "deliver a parallel revolution in international relations" (Walker, 1993, p. 295) and abandon the arms build-up mandated by the "Reagan Doctrine."
