The Inside Story of the End of the Cold War : for the First Time, the Secret Messages and Telephone Calls Between Bush and Gorbachev, Baker and Shevardnadze, and the Closed-door Meetings at the Kremlin, White House, Pentagon, CIA, and KGB
Baker & Taylor Offers a behind the scenes look at United States-Soviet relations between 1989 and 1991
Book News From early in 1989, the authors were privy to classified US and Soviet documents, cables, telephone transcripts, and diplomatic records, on the condition that they not publish the information before the end of 1992. They chronicle the intense and personal interaction between Gorbachev and Bush, who were, as stated in the preface, "...so attuned to each other that it eventually caused both men to lose touch with their domestic constituencies."

Blackwell North Amer This is a story that you did not read in the newspapers. At the Highest Levels reveals a hitherto secret dimension of the most momentous event of our time: the end of the Cold War. Beschloss and Talbott show us the vital transactions that George Bush and Mikhail Gorbachev made and concealed from the world: Bush's pledge not to press Gorbachev for Baltic independence, the manipulations for German unification, how the Soviet Union joined the Gulf War Coalition, Bush's private warnings to Gorbachev that he was about to be overthrown, and the U.S. president's secret efforts to prevent the breakup of the Soviet Union and keep Gorbachev in power.
