9780230748088: The End of the Cold War: 1985-1991
Vom Verlag:

The dismantling of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the spread of Perestroika throughout the former Soviet bloc was a sea change in world history and two years later resulted in the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

In The End of the Cold War, acclaimed Russian historian Robert Service examines precisely how that change came about. Drawing on a vast and largely untapped range of sources, he builds a picture of the two men who spearheaded the breakthrough: Ronald Reagan, President of the United States, and Mikhail Gorbachev, last General Secretary of the Soviet Union and first and last President of the USSR. He also analyses the role of influential players not only in America and the USSR, but throughout Eastern and Western Europe, and focuses especially on Pope John Paul II, Lech Watesa and Vaclav Havel.

Authoritative, compelling and meticulously researched, this is political history at its best.


Lenin: A Biography

'Impressive . . . lucidly written, sharply observed, full of good sense, packed with vivid anecdote and, above all, succeeds - where so many have failed - in creating a Lenin who is believably human' History Today

Stalin: A Biography

'A tour de force . . . No one has shown in more convincing detail than Service Stalin's evolution to the absolute power that corrupts absolutely' Spectator

Trotsky: A Biography

'Outstanding, fascinating . . . compelling as an adventure story - the ultimate rise and fall - but also revelatory as the scholarly revision of a historical reputation' Simon Sebag Montefiore, Sunday Telegraph

Spies and Commissars

'Service's cast list of journalists, diplomats, agents and their lovers is a joy. Emmeline Pankhurst wanders briefly across the stage, as does Arthur Ransome and the writer of the King Kong movie . . . a winning combination of scholarship, narrative drive and detail' Observer
