How it all began by Nikolaĭ Bukharin( Book )

4 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here at last in English is Nikolai Bukharin's autobiographical novel and final work. At once novel, memoir, political apology, and historical document, How It All Began, known in Russia as "the prison novel," adds greatly to our understanding of this vital intellectual and maligned historical figure. In the 1920s and '30s, he defended Lenin's liberal New Economic Policy, claiming that Stalin's policies of forced industrialization constituted a "military-feudal exploitation" of the masses. He also warned of the approaching tide of European fascism and its threat to the new Bolshevik revolution. For his opposition, Bukharin paid with his freedom and his life

Nikita Khrushchev by Sergeĭ Khrushchev( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 87 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

Conversations with Gorbachev : on perestroika, the Prague Spring, and the crossroads of socialism by Mikhail Sergeevich Gorbachev( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mikhail Gorbachev and Zdenek Mlynar were friends for half a century, from the time their paths first crossed as students in 1950. Although one was a Russian and the other a Czech, they were both ardent supporters of communism and socialism. One took part in laying the groundwork for and carrying out the Prague Spring; the other opened a new political era in Soviet and world politics." "In 1993 they decided that their conversations might be of interest to others and so they began to tape-record them. This volume is the product of that "thinking out loud." A historical document in its own right, the book is a record of two friends trying to explain to one another their views on the problems and events that determined their destinies. From reminiscences of their starry-eyed university days to reflections on the use of force to "save socialism" to contemplation of the end of the Cold War, here is a more revealing picture of Gorbachev than we have seen before."--Jacket
