    1. I should have read the description more closely. I thought it would be a history of perestroika; it turned out to be a series of essays, half written during perestroika, the other half written more recently. I didn't finish it. Archie Brown is a good writer, and very authoritative on the subject, and the essays would probably have been useful if I wanted to write an essay on the subject. But I wanted narrative history, and this didn't fit the bill.
