Abstract:

Remembered by many as the Soviet leader who banged his shoe at the United Nations, Nikita Khrushchev was in fact one of the most complex and important political figures of the twentieth century. Complicit in terrible Stalist crimes, he managed to retain his humanity. His daring attempt to reform Communism -- by denouncing Stalin and releasing and rehabilitating millions of his victims -- prepared the ground for its eventual collapse. His awkward efforts to ease the Cold War triggered its most dangerous crises in Berlin and Cuba. The ruler of the Soviet Union during the first decade after Stalin's death, Khrushchev left his contradictory stamp on his country and the world.-Dust jacket.
