Edward Crankshaw's biography of Nikita Khrushchev was the first to cover his entire career, from its humble beginnings to its sudden eclipse. Crankshaw was Russian correspondent for the London Observer for over two decades, followed Khrushchev from the 1920s and met him several times. His book tells the story of a self-made man who rose from peasant origins to become master of two hundred million Russians and a determining force in world affairs. How Khrushchev rode on Stalin's coattails for many years, praising his works, and then destroyed Stalin's image in his famous \"secret speech\" of 1956, is one of the many aspects of Nikita Khruschev that the author explains. The principal drama of the book is that of a ruthless clique, concerned less with ideology than with power and place in the rising, newly industrialized Russia.
