How it all began by Nikolaï Ivanovitch Boukharine( Book )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 1,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While in prison, Bukharin wrote four books, of which this unfinished novel was the last. It traces the development of Nikolai "Kolya" Petrov (closely modeled on Nikolai "Kolya" Bukharin) from his early childhood to age fifteen. In lyrical and poetic terms, it paints a picture of Nikolai's growing political consciousness and ends with his activism on the eve of the failed 1905 revolution. The novel is presented here along with the only surviving letter from Bukharin to his wife during his time in prison, an epistle filled with fear, longing, and hope for his family and his nation
Khrushchev in power : unfinished reforms, 1961-1964 by Sergei Khrushchev( )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A full reckoning of Nikita Khrushchev's accomplishments and failures cannot be complete without looking beyond his foreign policy initiatives to assess his efforts to introduce domestic policy reforms in the Soviet Union. Sergei Khrushchev tells the full story of those efforts during the years immediately before his father's ouster-and of the intrigues and struggles for power that went along with them. In many ways, as his son shows, the premier's reforms anticipated those that Deng Xiaoping successfully pursued later in China. But within only a few short years after he was forced to retire, they had been largely abandoned. Why that happened is one of the questions that Sergei Khrushchev seeks to answer in this book, as he draws on archival records, memoirs, and his own personal recollections to provide a comprehensive account of the 1961-1964 period

Post-Soviet Russia : a journey through the Yeltsin era by Roj Aleksandrovič Medvedev( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roy Medvedev analyzes the main events that have transpired in the Russian federation since late August 1991. He looks at the plans that were meant to restructure a society in crisis but - for reasons both complex and obvious - were destined to fail. From the drastic liberalization of prices and "shock therapy" to the privatization of state owned property and Yeltsin's resignation and replacement by Vladimir Putin, this is a saga of good intentions, philosophical warfare, and catastrophic miscalculations."--Jacket

The complete works of Rosa Luxemburg by Rosa Luxemburg( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rosa Luxemburg (1871-1919) is widely regarded as one of the most creative writers of modern socialism and the foremost female theoretician of European radicalism. Her wide-ranging and incisive works, which include studies on capitalism's inherent drive for global expansion, the relation between spontaneity and organisation, and the inseparability of democracy and socialism, have made her a pole of attraction for theorists and activists around the world. Her fiercely independent intellect and uncompromising defense of human liberty speaks more powerfully to our era than to any other. This volume contains a new English translation of Luxemburg's most important book, 'The Accumulation of Capital', as well as her response to its critics

Conversations with Gorbachev : on perestroika, the Prague Spring, and the crossroads of socialism by Mihail Sergeevič Gorbačëv( 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
