Text: English (translation)
Original Language: Russian
Perestroika (restructuring) presents Gorbachev's aspirations and major policies. "Democratization" of management and society is a central if undefined goal. The author admits past stagnation in domestic, and mistakes in foreign, policy. Instead of attaining communism by the end of the century, he aspires for the U.S.S.R. to reach the "world level" of science and technologyappealing to Westerners. But Perestroika reflects the limitations of present policy concerning "unanimity" among top leaders, agricultural reform, and Afghanistan. Despite its shortcomings, the book offers a valuable statement about Soviet policy. Recommended for academic and larger public libraries.Zachary T.
