The view from Lenin Hills; Soviet youth in ferment by William Taubman( Book )

13 editions published between 1967 and 1968 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A View From Lenin Hills is an eye-opening report on Russian youth today, a vital and resless new generation that openly criticizes Communist leaders and propaganda, and is disenchanted withthe twisting and turning of the Party line. While the youth dares to speak out, much remains the same in Russia, as Mr. Taubman discovered when he was trailed by the secret police and denied access to certain essential research facilities. How he and his young Soviet friends coped with these harassments enlivens this account with humor, as well as with suspense

The contributors to this volume include Russian, Ukrainian, American, and British scholars; a former key foreign policy aide to Khrushchev; the executive secretary of a Russian commission investigating Soviet-era repressions and rehabilitations; and Khrushchev's own son Sergei."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of one of the most bizarre episodes in the annals of modern history: the unprecedented trip across America in 1959 by Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, the world leader of communism and America's arch nemesis. The visit was an opportunity to halt the escalating threats of the Cold War and chart a new course toward peaceful coexistence. For the American press, it was the media story of the year
Gorbachev : his life and times by William Taubman( Recording )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first comprehensive biography of the final Soviet leader, William Taubman shows how a peasant boy became the Soviet system's gravedigger, how he clambered to the top of a system designed to keep people like him down, how he found common ground with America's arch-conservative president Ronald Reagan, and how he permitted the USSR and its East European empire to break apart without using force to preserve them. Throughout, Taubman portrays the many sides of Gorbachev's unique character that, by Gorbachev's own admission, make him "difficult to understand." Was he in fact a truly great leader, or was he brought low in the end by his own shortcomings, as well as by the unyielding forces he faced?"--

Khrushchev : [the man and his era] by William Taubman( Recording )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 22 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

Kruschev : el hombre y su tiempo by William Taubman( )

5 editions published in 2005 in Spanish and English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recordado por muchos como el jerarca soviético que blandió su zapato ante la asamblea de las Naciones Unidas, Nikita Kruschev fue en realidad una de las personalidades políticas más complejas e importantes del siglo XX, fundamental en la creación del panorama del siglo XXI. Involucrado en los terribles crímenes del estalinismo, no perdió pese a todo su humanidad. Su audaz intento de reformar el comunismo, denunciando a Stalin y liberando y rehabilitando a millones de sus víctimas, allanó el camino hacia la caída final del sistema. Sin embargo, su torpeza a la hora de suavizar la guerra fría desencadenó las crisis más peligrosas del periodo: la de la construcción del muro de Berlín y la de los misiles de Cuba. Gobernante de la Unión Soviética durante la década posterior a la muerte de Stalin, Kruschev dejó su contradictoria huella en su país y en el mundo. Su vida y su trayectoria política son un reflejo fiel de toda la era soviética: revolución, guerra civil, hambre, colectivización, industrialización, terror, guerra mundial, guerra fría, estalinismo, postestalinismo. Ésta es la primera biografía completa, honda y detallada de Kruschev. El autor se ha basado en archivos desclasificados en Rusia y Ucrania en los últimos tiempos, en visitas a los lugares donde el político vivió y trabajó, y en extensas entrevistas a sus familiares y amigos, así como a los colegas, subordinados y diplomáticos que tuvieron que batallar con él. William Taubman hace la crónica de su vida desde su origen humilde en un empobrecido pueblo agrícola hasta su insólito ascenso al círculo próximo de Stalin, su deslumbrante e inesperada victoria en el duelo a vida o muerte por la sucesión de Stalin y los comprometidos reveses de fortuna que llevaron a su súbita e ignominiosa destitución en 1964

Nikita Khrushchev : creation of a superpower by Sergeĭ Khrushchev( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 6 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
