About the Author:

Martin Walker is the Senior Director of the Global Business Policy Council and Editor-in-Chief Emeritus of United Press International. For 25 years he worked for the Guardian, holding the position of bureau chief in Moscow and Washington DC, and appeared as a regular commentator for CNN-TV. His pioneering work on Gorbachev and perestroika, The Walking Giant, was translated into ten languages. Educated as a historian in Oxford and Harvard, he was born into the Cold War and had a ringside seat at its close. He interviewed Mikhail Gorbachev, Margaret Thatcher and George Bush, attended the great summits of the 1980s, and researched this book in Moscow, Prague, Tokyo, London and Washington. A published novelist and poet, Martin Walker has also written books on the world's press and on right-wing politics in Britain.
