The New RussiaDe (autor) Mikhail Gorbachev Traducere de Arch Tait
en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – 27 May 2016
After years of rapprochement, the relationship between Russia and the West is more strained now than it has ever been in the past 25 years. Putin′s motives, his reasons for seeking confrontation with the West, remain for many a mystery. Not for Mikhail Gorbachev. In this new work, Russia′s elder statesman draws on his wealth of knowledge and experience to reveal the development of Putin′s regime and the intentions behind it. He argues that in order to further his own personal power, Putin has corrupted the achievements of perestroika and created a system which offers no future for Russia. Faced with this, Gorbachev advocates a radical reform of politics and new fostering of pluralism and social democracy.
Gorbachev′s insightful analysis moves beyond internal politics to address wider problems in the region, including the Ukraine conflict, as well as the global challenges of poverty and climate change. Above all else, he insists that solutions are to be found by returning to the atmosphere of dialogue and cooperation which was so instrumental in ending the Cold War.
This book represents the summation of Gorbachev′s thinking on the course that Russia has taken since 1991 and stands as a testament to one of the greatest and most influential statesmen of the 20th century.

"There are not many good books on new Russia. Mikhail Gorbachev’s The New Russia is probably the best book in many years. It is packed with knowledge, analysis, and new perspective on Russia."
Washington Book Review
"Compelling An important book for understanding the shape of the world today."
"He has produced a reflection full of an earnest desire that former enemies understand each other and find common ground in a febrile world. This is a reminder of how vast his achievement was in allowing in the light of freedom."
Mikhail Gorbachev was the last leader of the Soviet Union, serving as General Secretary of the Communist Part from 1985 to 1991. Since then, he has maintained an active role in world affairs through the Gorbachev Foundation, a non–profit think tank which promotes democracy and humanitarian initiatives globally.
