Description
A definitive account of the Soviet Empire's collapse -- by the only living American correspondent to report from Moscow during the last four decades.

In 1917, John Reed, an American journalist, wrote Ten Days That Shook The World, the classic account of the 1917 Communist revolution in Russia. Now, Fred Coleman, a Moscow correspondent who spent over 30 years gathering observations, has produced this sweeping examination of the collapse of the Soviet Empire.

Among Coleman's revelations are the inside stories behind:
-- Krushchev's fall from power
-- Why Brezhnev's invasion of Czechoslovakia was doomed to failure
-- Gorbachev's rationale for risking reform
-- Yeltsin's death blow to the Soviet state

Coleman has created an indispensible history of the Soviet Union that will be read for years to come.

Must reading for all who seek a clear picture of the Soviet period". -- Malcolm Toon, Former U.S. Ambassador To Moscow
