Description

Together with Mikhail Gorbachev and Alexander Yakovlev, Eduard Shevardnadze led the dramatic Soviet about-face in the 1980s that ended the Cold War and transformed the international political climate. While Gorbachev and Yakovlev focused on domestic reform, Shevardnadze redirected foreign policy. This major book is the first to take a critical look at the many battles Shevardnadze has fought at home and abroad throughout his remarkable career. This updated edition further assesses the leadership role he continues to play in the turbulent independent state of Georgia.
