About the Author

Mikhail Gorbachev was the last leader of the Soviet Union, serving as General Secretary of the Communist Party from 1985 to 1991 and President of the USSR from 1990 to 1991. He played a pivotal role in bringing an end to the Cold War and he was awarded the Noble Peace Prize in 1990. Since then, he has maintained an active role in world affairs through the Gorbachev Foundation, a non-profit organization which promotes democracy and humanitarian initiatives globally.

Reviews

"I was fortunate in being with Margaret Thatcher when she met Mikhail Gorbachev in 1984. He did more to end the Cold War than anyone else and it ended without a shot being fired. We need to listen to his wise advice and encourage Vladimir Putin, not just Donald Trump, to act on it. Neither wants war but, as Gorbachev writes, we could end up with it by accident with the world being devastated."
Sir Malcolm Rifkind, former Foreign Secretary and Defence Secretary of the United Kingdom

"Mikhail Gorbachev has written this book to warn us of the grave risks we now face and to urge us all, political leaders and citizens alike, to take action to address them. This succinct account of the immense challenges we now face by one of the world's greatest statesmen will be of interest to everyone concerned about the current state of the world and its future."
George P. Shultz, former Secretary of State and Secretary of the Treasury of the United States

"This is a book that should be read and pondered by every concerned citizen. The shock of pandemic has exposed fundamental flaws in the international system that developed following the end of the Cold War. We must demand that our political leaders heed Mikhail Gorbachev's impassioned plea for an end to militarized geopolitical competition in favour of cooperative policies that promote security for all nations."
Jack F. Matlock, Jr., author of Reagan and Gorbachev: How the Cold War Ended

"This timely book, strongly urging re-affirmation of morality in global relations, is of value out of all proportion to its 120 pages."
Rev. Brian Cooper, Vice President, Uniting for Peace
