Khrushchev The Man and His Era Read Ý 5 The definitive biography of the mercurial Soviet leader who succeeded and denounced Stalin Nikita Khrushchev was one of the most complex and important political figures of the twentieth century Ruler of the Soviet Union during the first decade after Stalin's death Khrushchev left a contradictory stamp on his country and on the world His life and career mirror the Sovie. For many of us Russian common man Nikita Khrushchev was the first human face of Soviet leadership Lenin a grainy figure from newsreels or a corpse on display in a tomb Josef Stalin a phantom figure seen with FDR and Churchill in pictures In one news clip breath Khrushchev was grinning gap toothed from one jug ear to the other and in the next moment slamming his shoe down on his desk at the UN To label Mr Khrushchev mercurial is an understatement He was a bundle of insecurities who far too often acted before thinking rashly believing hubris was the antidote for any confrontation Khrushchev was the proverbial bull who traveled with his own china shop yet he could also be as contrite as a small child this Jekyll and Hyde personality a dangerous combination during the Cold WarThis Soviet style rags to riches story of Khrushchev s life and times is presented here in detail and is in a word compelling The author combines anecdotes first hand accounts and the historical record providing analysis when appropriate including highlighting contemporaneous newsreel footage which I found fascinating Many of the chapters begin with a summary before detailing the topic at hand something this reader found invaluable This is a cradle to grave biography in the best sense of the termSome highlights Considered a blustering uneducated stumpy peasant Khrushchev somehow not only survived Stalin s purges but succeeded him as head of the Soviet Union besting the likes of Beria head of the nefarious KGB and General Zhukov the Russian military victor of World War II This is a story in and of itself dispelling any thoughts that Khrushchev was simple or dumb Khrushchev was personally much closer to Stalin than at least this reader knew the relationship between the two men complicated and one that haunted Khrushchev continually after Stalin s death in 1953 He was not alone Stalin cast a very long and enduring historic shadow haunting communists and capitalists alike In 1956 once in power Khrushchev delivered his secret speech blasting Stalin and denouncing his ismInitiating the Berlin crisis Khrushchev then seemed to be led into the building of the infamous Wall by East German General Secretary Walter Ulbricht Khrushchev intimidated JFK at Vienna in 1961 and then riding this wave of adrenaline brought the world to the brink of nuclear destruction during the Cuban missile crisis in 1962 this covered in detail here During the late 1950 s and early 1960 s his word was literally law in the USSR affecting millions of his citizens while driving global events as world leaders such as Eisenhower JFK Macmillan De Gaulle and Mao scrambled in reaction to Khrushchev s mood swings All this and much is covered here Highly recommended

Khrushchev The Man and His Era Read Ý 5 CrisesThis is the first comprehensive biography of Khrushchev and the first of any Soviet leader to reflect the full range of sources that have become available since the USSR collapsed Combining a page turning historical narrative with penetrating political and psychological analysis this book brims with the life and excitement of a man whose story personified his er. I found the book ultimately rather boring which is sad because K was not a boring man I was also confused for about the first tbird of the book because I was constantly confused as to when I was It took me that long to realize Taubman s biography was a mix of topical and chronological but with the emphasis on topical Because of this some events and conversations were covered than once In a book this long that is irritating I felt I gained a better understand of the goals and efforts of the Soviet Union under K as well as a much better understanding of the US fear of communistic goals to take over smaller third world countries and the Soviet pledge to encourage rebellion wherever there was any dissent I appreciated the irony that toward the end of his life he became almost a dissident but actually became a political criminal And his son Sergei carried out the greatest irony of allIn 1991 Sergei Khurshchev K s son moved to Providence Rhode Island where he has since been a fellow at Brown University teaching Sergei and his wife Velentina obtained American citizenship in 1999 an act that outraged many Russians Even those who aren t nostalgic for communism are chagrined at how empty Nikita Khrushchev s boasts turned out to be Khrushchev crowed that grandchildren of Americans he met would live under communism Instead his own son is living under capitalismAsked if there was anything he regretted Nikita Khrushchev said it was all the blood that he was up to his elbows in bloodOne other thing struck me as I read was how similar in personality are Khrushchev and President Trump For both disagreement is defined as disloyalty Like K Trump will get an idea that he wants to implement some policy and refuses to listen to advisers explaining why that is impractical or inadvisable He wants it it will be done Don t talk to him about compromise Both tout pseudo science and fake science as real and important And neither hadhas a concept of decorum One remembers the tale of K s banging his shoe on the table at the UN Following that he was proud he did it As he was ousted from office K s detractors pointed out that after several years he still saw it as something of valor rather than embarrassing for a world leader to do and harmful to the reputation of the nation Of similar vein Trump chiding on Twitter to North Korea s threats of nuclear attacks that we have a bigger button The world saw with both events What An Idiot But the Soviet Union had an excuse Khruschev took over Trump was electedYet ultimately although K did many many very harmful things to the Soviet Union his move away from the horrors of Stalinism and his move toward reforms paved the way for the glastnost of Gorbachov As much harm as he did to his country he also did good Will Trump be seen historically in the same way despite his harm did he also do good and will the good outweigh the harm With Khrushchev it did not
