"The book makes use of a range of memoirs, interviews, archival documents and other sources not available before 1990, to place Brezhnev and his epoch in a broader historical context." "While stopping well short of a full-scale rehabilitation of Brezhnev, Tompson rejects the prevailing image of the Soviet leader as a colourless nonentity, drawing attention to Brezhnev's real political skills, as well as his faults, and to the systematic roots of many of the problems he faced."--BOOK JACKET." ;
