Leaders of Transition by Martin Westlake, Martin Westlake

Having struggled to the top of the greasy pole of politics, the six leaders considered in this volume--Mikail Gorbachev, F.W. de Klerk, General Jaruzelski, Adolfo Suarez, Achille Ochetto, and Neil Kinnock--set about introducing far-reaching changes to their parties or their states. Veritable leaders of transition, they can lay claim to havinng changed the course of history and yet, ironically, all are now forgotten or vilified and were never able to benefit from the changes they introduced. Why, then, did they do what they did? This book sets out to explore their achievements and their motives.
