The 1980s saw a change in the political landscape, with Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev sworn in as leaders of America and the Soviet Union respectively. The two men would work together to ease tensions between the nations, culminating in the 1987 nuclear missile treaty and eventually the conclusion of the Cold War. The 1980s also saw perhaps the biggest wedding ceremony of all-time, as Prince Charles wed Diana Spencer at St Paul’s Cathedral on 29th July 1981.
Probably the most tragic piece of 80s news came in January 1986, when the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded after 73 seconds, with the event broadcast on national television. Personalise your Washington Post Decade book with a name and special message, which will be printed in a certificate on the title page. The name will also be embossed in gold on the cover, making this the perfect gift for any budding historian.
