The New Cold War: Revolutions, Rigged Elections and Pipeline Politics in the Former Soviet Union
Random House Canada, 2007 - 313 páginas
An intrepid investigation into the pro-democracy movements that have reshaped the Eastern bloc since 2000, reopening the Kremlin's wounds from the Cold War. When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989 and the Soviet Union collapsed two years later, liberal democracy was supposed to fill the void left by Soviet communism. Poland and Czechoslovakia made the best of reforms, but the citizens of the Evil Empire itself saw little of the promised freedom, and more of the same old despots and corruption. Recently, a second wave of reforms-Serbia in 2000, Georgia in 2003 and Ukraine in 2004, as well as Kyrgyzstan's regime change in 2005 - have proven almost as monumental as those in Berlin and Moscow. The people of the Eastern bloc, aided in no small part by Western money and advice, are again rising up and demanding an end to autocracy. And once more, the Kremlin is battling the White House every step of the way. Mark MacKinnon spent these years working in Moscow, and his view of the story and access to those involved remains unparalleled. With The New Cold War, he reveals the links between these democratic revolutions - and the idealistic American billionaire behind them-in a major investigation into the forces that are quietly reshaping the post- Soviet world.
