Bukharin and the Bolshevik Revolution : a political biography, 1888-1938 by Stephen F Cohen( Book )

112 editions published between 1971 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 2,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

¿Cómo fue posible que un miembro esencial de la clase dirigente soviética pasara a ser un nadie? Recordar a Nikolái Ivánovich Bujarin simplemente como autor de varios manuales de pensamiento marxista es una injusticia de la historia. Esta ha oscurecido la importancia de Bujarin como miembro destacado del grupo dirigente del Partido de Lenin y jefe de la Internacional Comunista, o como teórico oficial del comunismo soviético y director de Pravda. Su papel tras la muerte de Lenin fue particularmente importante como codirigente, junto a Stalin, del Partido desde 1925 hasta 1930, cuando se produce la ruptura entre ellos desde resistencia bolchevique contra la ascensión del estalinismo. Stephen F. Cohen, sovietólogo reconocido internacionalmente, nos lega esta biografía política de un hombre que no solo fue fundamental en la historia de la Unión Soviética, sino desde la que es posible reexaminar la Revolución rusa y las primeras décadas de la historia soviética, desde la formación del radicalismo bolchevique hasta la década de los treinta con la gran purga de Stalin y la destrucción del viejo Partido Bolchevique

Failed crusade : America and the tragedy of post-Communist Russia by Stephen F Cohen( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Stephen F. Cohen reveals what has really happened in Russia since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, and the complicity of U.S. policy in a great human tragedy. Drawing on many years of studying and living in Russia, Cohen shows that what American officials and other experts call "reform" has for most Russians been a catastrophe and for the United States the worst foreign policy disaster since Vietnam: the unprecedented demodernization and destabilization of a fully nuclearized twentieth-century country."--Jacket

Soviet fates and lost alternatives : from Stalinism to the new Cold War by Stephen F Cohen( Book )

31 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this wide-ranging and acclaimed book, Stephen F. Cohen challenges conventional wisdom about the course of Soviet and post-Soviet history. Reexamining leaders from Nikolai Bukharin, Stalin's preeminent opponent, and Nikita Khrushchev to Mikhail Gorbachev and his rival Yegor Ligachev, Cohen shows that their defeated policies were viable alternatives and that their tragic personal fates shaped the Soviet Union and Russia today. Cohen's ramifying arguments include that Stalinism was not the predetermined outcome of the Communist Revolution; that the Soviet Union was reformable and its breakup avoidable; and that the opportunity for a real post-Cold War relationship with Russia was squandered in Washington, not in Moscow. This is revisionist history at its best, compelling readers to rethink fateful events of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries and the possibilities ahead."--Publisher description

War with Russia? : from Putin & Ukraine to Trump & Russiagate by Stephen F Cohen( Book )

9 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cohen believes that America is in a new Cold War with Russia -- and it is even more dangerous than the one the world barely survived in the twentieth century. The two nuclear superpowers are again locked in political and military confrontations. Cohen provides a narrative of this dangerous new Cold War from its origins in the 1990s, the actual role of Vladimir Putin, and the 2014 Ukrainian crisis to Donald Trump's election and today's unprecedented Russiagate allegations. -- adapted from info

Should the West engage Putin's Russia? : Pozner and Cohen vs. Applebaum and Kasparov( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How should the West deal with Putin's Russia' For the U.S. and some European powers the answer is obvious: isolate Russia with punishing economic sanctions, remove it from global institutions such as the G8, and arm the nations directly threatened by Putin. In short, return to the Cold War doctrine that froze Soviet aggression in Europe and helped bring about the collapse of communist Russia. Others argue that such a policy is a dead end. Putin's Russia has legitimate grievances against Western and NATO powers meddling in its sphere of influence. Instead of further antagonizing Putin and risking a dangerous escalation of the current conflict, the U.S. and Europe should seek common cause with Russia to address shared threats, from the Middle East to Asia to combatting terrorism. In the fifteenth semi-annual Munk Debate, acclaimed academic Stephen F. Cohen and veteran journalist and bestselling author Vladimir Poznar square off against internationally renowned expert on Russian history Anne Applebaum and Russian-born political dissident Garry Kasparov to debate the future of the West's relationship with Russia

Many subjects are explored including Gorbachev's own biography, the nature of his reforms, his role in ending the Cold War, and his assessments of Boris Yeltsin's leadership and the U.S./Russian relations since 1991
Inside Gorbachev's Kremlin by E. K Ligachev( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These memoirs by the second most powerful Communist leader in the Soviet Union during the dramatic years of the Gorbachev era provide a unique view of the profound changes that have shaken that country. They are the first authentic political memoirs to come from high places in all of Soviet history. Yegor Ligachev, at first an ally of Mikhail Gorbachev in reforming the Communist Party, led the split in the leadership when reform turned to abolition, eventually losing the struggle for power that followed. Ligachev's memoirs give an astonishingly candid and intimate account of Gorbachev's rise to power and his ascent, with Ligachev's crucial help, to the position of general secretary in 1985. Together they launched perestroika, removing the shackles of seventy years of Communist rule as they ushered in a new era of freedom. But then a serious rift began between Ligachev's allies, the party stalwarts, and those fighting for more radical change. How Gorbachev maneuvered between the two groups until he eventually lost his footing in the shifting sands of fast-moving events is the subject of this extraordinary memoir. Ligachev reveals information, insights, and details never before disclosed with such candor from the inner circles of Soviet power. From the famous Kremlin office No. 2, where he sat in the chair once occupied by Andropov, Chernenko, and Gorbachev, Ligachev had a front-row view of enormously important events, and he tells about them with passion and unabashed partisanship: how Gorbachev came to power, what happened inside Gorbachev's leadership, why and how it fell apart. Along the way he provides revealing glimpses of Gorbachev, Alexander Yakovlev, Boris Yeltsin, Eduard Shevardnadze, Yuri Andropov, Andrei Gromyko, and many other Soviet leaders. Here is a fascinating and invaluable account of a historical drama that has changed the world. It is also a first, large step toward the real writing of Soviet political history, in which it is destined to become a major contribution
