David Pryce-Jones has somehow managed to interview many of the people involved in the collapse of the Soviet Union and its satellite states. Furthermore, he has bound the interviews together in a way that flows. The resultant critique and the mixture of integrity, hypocrisy, defensiveness etc. the various protagonists exhibit is fascinating. It deepened my understanding of the reasons why the empire collapsed - and I found it impossible to put down too. Highly recommended.

This work provides a valuable and objective explanation of the collapse of the Soviet Union. The author provides loads of personal detail that clears up many of the mysteries of the collapse and why it did not end more violently than it did.
