Nikita Khrushchev by William Taubman, Sergei Khrushchev

This work is a biography that brings to light one of the most secretive figures of the USSR.

Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev was a politician who led the Soviet Union. He served as First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, and as Chairman of the Council of Ministers, or Premier. Khrushchev was responsible for the de-Stalinization of the Soviet Union, for backing the progress of the early Soviet space program, and for several relatively liberal reforms in areas of domestic policy. Khrushchev's party colleagues removed him from power in 1964, replacing him with Leonid Brezhnev as First Secretary and Alexei Kosygin as Premier.
