TATYANA TOLSTAYA the Russian novelist had this to say about Gorbachev " By gently pushing open the gates of reform, he unleashed a democratic flood that deluged the Soviet universe and washed away the cold war..... No single approach — and there have been many — can explain Gorbachev. Perhaps the holy fools with their metaphysical scenario were right when they whispered that he was marked and that seven years were given to him to transform Russia in the name of her as yet invisible but inevitable salvation and renaissance." Gorbachev met his wife, Raisa Titarenko, daughter of a Ukrainian railway engineer, at Moscow State University. They married in September 1953 and moved to Stavropol upon graduation. She gave birth to their only child, daughter Irina Mikhailovna Virganskaya, in 1957. Raisa Gorbacheva died of leukemia in 1999. Gorbachev has two granddaughters (Ksenia and Anastasia) and one great granddaughter (Aleksandra). Foward by Martin McCauley. Dust jacket now in Brodart mylar protective (clear) cover.
