London Weidenfeld & Nicolson 1995 029781320X / 9780297813200 First Edition Fine Fine Book 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
First edition. Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. No marks or inscriptions. Silver lettering to spine. This is an account of the end of the Soviet empire. The coup of August 1991 brought an end not only to Gorbachev's political career, but to the entire Soviet Union: communism imploded, the Berlin Wall had been dismantled, Germany reunified, and several European states regained their independence. This reordering of the world, unimaginable to most people in the West, occurred remarkably peacefully. David Pryce-Jones travelled throughout the former empire to ask the major political personalities for their opinions and reactions as to why this happened. He asked why Gorbachev and the leadership didn't resort to armed violence in classic Soviet style; how much was accidental, how much planned; and how much will never be known about the workings of the impenetrable structure which held together the Soviet bloc. Party leaders, decision-makers and first secretaries of the Soviet republics and satellites each give their version of events, often speaking frankly about Gorbachev, his motivations and actions. Nice and clean internally and externally. First edition means first edition, first printing, unless otherwise clearly stated.
