Some brief overview of book

An intriguing intellectual portrait of a generation of Soviet reformers, this book is also a fascinating case study of how ideas can change the course of history. In most analyses of the Cold Wars end the ideological aspects of Gorbachevs new thinking are treated largely as incidental to the broader considerations of poweras gloss on what was essentially a retreat forced by crisis and decline. Robert English makes a major contribution by demonstrating that Gorbachevs foreign policy was in fact the result of an intellectual revolution.

English analyzes the rise of a liberal policy-academic elite and its impact on the Cold Wars end. English worked in the archives of the USSR Foreign Ministry and also gained access to the restricted collections of leading foreign-policy institutes. He also conducted nearly 400 interviews with Soviet intellectuals and policy makersfrom Khrushchev- and Brezhnev-era Politburo members to Perestroika-era notables such as Eduard Shevardnadze and Gorbachev himself.

English traces the rise of a Westernizing worldview from the post-Stalin years, through a group of liberals in the late1960s-70s, to a circle of close advisers who spurred Gorbachevs most radical reforms.
