' ... deeply penetrating history and engrossing psychological study.' Robert Legvold, Foreign Affairs MagazineFrom the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Khrushchev: The Man and his Era 'An engaging, poignant portrayal of one of the most significant of Russian leaders.' Kirkus review. 'William Taubman's Gorbachev, like his Khrushchev, is an extraordinary achievement, full of new information, filled with shrewd judgments, a two-in-a-row triumph in the writing of great lives.' - John Lewis Gaddis, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of George F. Kennan: An American Life `Nobody before Taubman has achieved an in-depth psychological portrait...what made Gorbachev tick, as a man and a leader, has always been hooded in speculation...A highly readable, reliable and accurate work, one that will be used by all future generations of historians... This monumental biography will become the standard personal portrait, especially of the years before Gorbachev became party secretary. Taubman has charmed more out of him than any of his subordinates ever managed to' Robert Service, Literary Review `Impressive... full of fascinating detail' Peter Conradi, Sunday Times `Comprehensive and immensely readable' The Economist This is the definitive biography on one of the most important and controversial figures of the 20th century. Drawing on interviews with Gorbachev himself, transcripts and documents from the Russian archives, and interviews with Kremlin aides and adversaries, as well as foreign leaders, Taubman's intensely personal portrait extends to Gorbachev's remarkable marriage to a woman he deeply loved, and to the family that they raised together. Nuanced and poignant, yet unsparing and honest, this sweeping account has all the amplitude of a great Russian novel.90 illustrations When Mikhail Gorbachev became its leader in March 1985, the USSR was still one of the world's two superpowers. By the end of his tenure six years later, the Communist system was dismantled, the cold war was over and, on 25th December 1991, the Soviet Union itself ceased to exist. While not solely responsible for this remarkable upheaval, he set decisive changes in motion. Assessments of Gorbachev could not be more polarised. In the West, he is regarded as a hero. In Russia, he is widely hated by those who blame him for the collapse of the USSR. Admirers marvel at this vision and courage. Detractors, including many of his Kremlin comrades, have accused him of everything from naivete to treason.
