Abstract:

The definitive biography of the transformational world leader by the Pulitzer Prize?winning author of -- 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.
