Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Details the Gorbachev era and reasons for the collapse of the Soviet Union, describing the period as a real revolution rather than mere reform. Shows that Premier Nikolai Ryzhkov and the bureaucrats in his government were actually the serious economic reformers in the leadership, and that Gorbachev and later Boris Yeltsin were encouraged in their worst mistakes by Western advice. A conclusion explores implications for Western thinking on the process of democratization and marketization. Paper edition (unseen), $26.95.
