Nikita Khrushchev creation of a superpower by Sergeĭ Khrushchev ( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"More is known about Nikita Khrushchev than about many former Soviet leaders, partly because of his own efforts to communicate through speeches, interviews, and memoirs. (A partial version of his memoirs was published in three volumes in 1970, 1974, and 1990, and a complete version was published in Russia in 1999 and will appear in an English translation to be published by Penn State Press.) But even with the opening of party and state archives in 1991, as William Taubman points out in his Foreword, many questions remain unanswered. In this book Sergei tells the story of how the Cold War happened in reality from the Russian side, not from the American side, and this is his most important contribution."--Jacket

Khrushchev the man and his era by William Taubman ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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
