520 |a "On June 8, 1982, Ronald Reagan delivered a historic address to the British Parliament, promising that the United States would give people around the world "a voice in their own destiny" in the struggle against Soviet totalitarianism. While British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher celebrated Reagan's visit and thanked him for putting "freedom on the offensive," over 100,000 Britons marched from Hyde Park to Trafalgar Square to protest his arrival and call for nuclear disarmament. Reagan's homecoming was equally eventful, with 1,000,000 protesters marking his return with a rally for nuclear disarmament in Central Park--the largest protest in American history up to that point. Employing a wide range of previously unexamined primary sources, Anthony Eames demonstrates how the Reagan and Thatcher administrations used innovations in public diplomacy to build back support for their foreign policy agendas at a moment of widespread popular dissent. A Voice in Their Own Destiny traces how competition between the governments of Reagan and Thatcher, the Anglo-American antinuclear movement, and the Soviet peace offensive sparked a revolution in public diplomacy"--  |c Provided by publisher.
