Summary
  • This is a unique insider's account of Soviet foreign policy-making under Gorbachev written by a member of the inner circle of Gobachev's advisors and political allies at the time
  • "The sudden ending of the Cold War, surely the dominant feature of the second half of the twentieth century, continues to be one of the most unexpected and perplexing events of our time. Explanations provided by the winners and losers in the Cold War differ considerably and often contradict each other. Even taken together they do not provide a compelling answer to the key question: why did it happen?" "Gorbachev's Gamble offers a new and convincing answer to this question by providing the missing link between the internal and external aspects of Gorbachev's perestroika. Andrei Grachev shows that the radical transformation of Soviet foreign policy during the Gorbachev years was an integral part of an ambitious project of internal democratic reform and of the historic opening of Soviet society to the outside world."--BOOK JACKET
