Description - Conversations with Gorbachev by Zdenek Mlynar

Mikhail Gorbachev and Zdenek Mlynar were friends for half a century after they first crossed paths as students in 1950. In 1993 they decided their conversations might be of interest to others and so began to tape-record them. From reminiscences of their starry-eyed university days to reflections on the use of force to "save socialism" to contemplation of the end of the Cold War, this is a candid picture of Gorbachev.
