Polity Press, 2016, Hardcover, Book Condition: Fine Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine, First Edition
A very clean, bright copy. Almost as new (hairline surface mark to front of jacket). Clean unmarked pages, tightly bound. "This is a reminder of how vast was [Gorbachev's] achievement in allowing in the light of freedom. Where his contemporary, Nelson Mandela, was great beyond the whites' deserts in building a post-apartheid nation, Mr Gorbachev was great beyond the deserts of the Soviet Union (and perhaps even of the west, which could barely understand or trust him) in proposing a way for the despotic world to aspire to democratic governance, freely organised civil society and rule of law. That he failed, he keenly knows. Our best hope is that his ideas, in time, succeed." Financial Times 400 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Politics & Government; ISBN/EAN: 9781509503872.
