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

14 editions published between 1967 and 1968 in English and held by 540 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

Gorbatschow der Mann und seine Zeit : eine Biographie by William Taubman( Book )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in German and Undetermined and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Ausland verehrt und bewundert als der Mann, der das Tor zu einem neuen Zeitalter aufstieß, gilt er bei seinen Landsleuten als Schwächling und Totengräber des sowjetischen Imperiums: Michail Gorbatschow ist für die einen ein überragender Staatsmann und für die anderen ein Versager. Pulitzerpreisträger William Taubman legt nun die grundlegende Biographie dieser Jahrhundertgestalt vor - akribisch recherchiert, fundiert im Urteil und fesselnd geschrieben. Als Michail Gorbatschow 1985 mit 54 Jahren jüngster Generalsekretär in der Geschichte der KPdSU wurde, war die Sowjetunion eine von zwei Supermächten. Doch nur vier Jahre später hatten Perestroika und Glasnost die Sowjetunion für immer verändert und Gorbatschow mehr Feinde als Freunde. Seine Politik beendete den Kalten Krieg. Doch im Jahr darauf musste er nach einem gescheiterten Putsch - ohne es zu wollen - dem Kollaps jenes Imperiums zuschauen, das er zu retten versucht hatte. William Taubman schildert in seinem Buch, wie ein Bauernjunge vom Lande es bis an die Spitze im Kreml bringt, sich mit Amerikas erzkonservativem Präsidenten Ronald Reagan anfreundet und es der UdSSR und dem Ostblock erlaubt, sich aufzulösen, ohne Zuflucht zur Gewalt zu nehmen. Wer war dieses "Rätsel Gorbatschow" - ein wahrhaft großer Politiker oder ein Mann, der an seinen eigenen Fehlern scheiterte und an Mächten, gegen die er nicht gewinnen konnte?
Gorbachev : his life and times by William Taubman( Recording )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 109 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 20 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( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in Spanish and held by 12 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
On My Country and the World by Mikhail Gorbachev( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What were the goals of perestroika? How did such a vast superpower disintegrate so quickly? From the awakening of ethnic tensions, to the inability of democrats to unite, to his own attempts to reform but preserve the union, Gorbachev retraces those fateful days and explains the origins of Russia's present crises. But Gorbachev does not just train his critical eye on the past. He lays out a blueprint for where Russia needs to go in the twenty-first century, suggesting ways to strengthen the federation and achieve meaningful economic and political reforms. In the final section of the book, Gorbachev examines the "new thinking" in foreign policy that helped to end the Cold War and shows how such approaches could help resolve a range of crises, including NATO expansion, the role of the UN, the fate of nuclear weapons, and environmental problems.
