Twilight of empire - inside the crumbling Soviet bloc
Robert Cullen
Bodley Head
UK Publication Date

The Soviet Union is falling apart, day by day. The Caucasus looks like another version of the Middle East, with Armenians and Azerbaijanis killing one another over religion and bits of disputed territory. Estonians, Latvians and Lithuanians brave Soviet army bullets to proclaim their independence. The Warsaw Pact collapses soundlessly and the centre plainly cannot hold. On this subject Robert Cullen has written a book about people.;Travelling into the heart of the disorder - in the Baltic countries, in Armenia and Romania, even into the halls of the Kremlin - he reports what the people themselves are saying and thinking and doing at this time of crisis and (for some) hope. From the president of Latvia to Russian arch-conservative Yegor Ligachev, from a Soviet tank commander on duty in Azerbaijan to student radicals in Vilnius, these are the human faces behind the geopolitics.;The author also wrote the suspense novel "Soviet Sources". He won an Overseas Press Club award for foreign reporting.
