The research is primarily based on Soviet materials, supplemented and critically compared with a wide range of Western press and academic studies.

Both Zemtsov and Farrar bring to the analysis their own experiences, acquired under different circumstances.Part I focuses on a selected chronology of significant events from Gorbachevs assumption of power in March 1985 to June 1987. The authors examine leadership and personnel changes, the economy, the society, and the arts.

Part II takes a look at foreign policies by examining: relations with the United States and the industrialized West- arms control policy- relations with Eastern Europe- relations with the Peoples Republic of China- and relations with the third world. Part III explores Gorbachevs military policies. Part IV concludes with the authors assessment of the future. Included in this book are appendices on: changes in the Council of Ministers, Ministers, and Chairmen of State Committees- Politburo and central committee meetings since Gorbachev became General Secretary, through June 1987- and announced changes in the Diplomatic Corps and Foreign Ministry as reported in the Soviet press.

The hardcover edition of this book was published in Gorbachevs early years. It thus represents an early assessment, and as such a document of events at the time they occurred. Renewed interest in communism, and in the dissolution of the Soviet Union make this paperback edition timely.
