What was it about this man which enabled him to see so much more clearly than his colleagues? Like most who start a revolution, Gorbachev has been left behind.
No longer in power, he has been forced to endure criticism from those wise after the event - most notably Boris Yeltsin, who became undisputed leader after the failed military coup that finally displaced Gorbachev from office. In these memoirs Gorbachev reveals his feelings about the sad state of his country today. He tells us of his childhood in the North Caucasus during the Second World War, of coming to Moscow as a student and meeting Raisa Maksimovna, of his glittering career as a Party functionary, eventually becoming one of the most powerful men in the world.This is a historical document of the first importance. It is also a fascinating human story, an insider's account of the events that we never dared believe could happen.
