Back in the 90's I believe, someone wrote a book dedicated to showing how the alliance of Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II was responsible for bringing down the Soviet Union/Warsaw Pact. Does anyone know the title of this book and its author? Thank you.

I thought of the book "The Final Revolution - The Resistance Church and the Collapse of Communism" by George Weigel. But there is no mention of Margaret Thatcher. Ronald Reagan is mentioned several times, though.

That seems like a very odd oversight. Thatcher was instrumental in the 'revolution,' just as much as Reagan.

I remember a book I liked reading thirty years ago. I can't remember what it was about. But I remember it had a blue cover. I bet GKC can guess what it was.....












Just kidding. But he is awesome at coming up with book titles.

ON THE EVILS OF WAGERING/McGargle/1922.

You are very kind. It comes from my affliction, of course.

I'm thinking of a book with 346 pages. Plus introduction.

OK, go!
