The strange death of the Soviet empire by David Pryce-Jones( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sudden and almost bloodless demise of the Soviet Union - and with it, communism - caught everyone by surprise, from the KGB and the Red Army to Gorbachev, Yeltsin, and the dissidents at home and in the satellite states. In the first full-scale account of this mysterious transformation, historian and journalist David Pryce-Jones is able to provide answers to the crucial questions: Why did Gorbachev not shoot his way out of the crisis in classic Soviet style, as former leaders had done in Hungary and Czechoslovakia? How did an unlikely alliance of nationalist actors, idealistic poets, and political priests unseat the ruling despots of Warsaw, Bucharest, East Berlin, and Prague? What role did the West really play in all this? And what do these remarkable events presage for Russia's future? The result is a vivid account of the Soviet empire's fall, as experienced from the inside - and at the top. Uncompromising in its accuracy and keen in its insight, The Strange Death of the Soviet Empire is the definitive account of one of history's greatest anticlimaxes

25 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Boris Yeltsin's bid for power then split the Party, leading to the coup of August 1991 and Gorbachev's own destruction. Why Gorbachev and the leadership did not resort to armed violence to pre-empt these events in classic Soviet style is the question which David Pryce-Jones addresses. For this purpose he has travelled extensively throughout the former empire to ask major political personalities for their reactions and insights. The opinions of Party leaders and decision-makers, including first secretaries and ideological secretaries in the Soviet republics and satellites, provide a narrative of this volume crisis. How much was accidental, how much was by design, in all probability will never be settled. Gorbachev, his colleagues, advisors and rivals, their hopes and regrets, emerge in the round. Here is the death of Communism as experienced on the inside, at the top

Treason of the heart : from Thomas Paine to Kim Philby by David Pryce-Jones( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Treason of the Heart is an account of British people who took up foreign causes. Not mercenaries, then, but ideologues. Almost all were what today we would call radicals or activists, who thought they knew better than whichever bunch of backward or oppressed people it was that they had come to save. Usually they were applying to others what they saw as the benefits of their culture, and so obviously meritorious was their culture that they were prepared to be violent in imposing it. Some genuinely hated their own country, however, and saw themselves promoting abroad the values their own retrogr
