Hi, I'm doing the end of the Cold War for my history CW, particularly whether it was Gorbachev or Reagan whose actions contributed more to its end. Over summer I was meant to take notes from at least 5 books about my chosen topic. However, with only a few weeks left, I realized of the 4 books I got from the college library (aka the only 4 the even broached the topic of the end of the cold war) all suck. They have very little detail about the individuals involved and as this is a topic I'm not very read up on I'm struggling to formulate opinions.
As such, can anyone recommend any books or other materials that I could use? I can definitely make do with what I have, and have a look in my local library (though I doubt it'd be much better; it's not massive), but I'd definitely be grateful for recommendations. My teacher really bigged up this topic and said it would be an interesting thing to explore, but right now I don't feel like I'm making much headway.
Thanks!

Could you specify the exam board you're using and perhaps the NEA requirements? I could suggest some schools of thought if so.

In terms of extended reading, Victor Sebestyen's 'Revolution 1989 The fall of the Soviet Empire' offers insight into factors that had been latent for decades. Moreover, he visited the Soviet Union during 1989 presented surreal detail.

Not sure if you're asking for schools of thought or detail to reference or develop your own understanding.
