    William Taubman who did a biography of Khruschev in 2003 is coming out with a biography of Gorbachev in September.

    • Thanks for the tip – I recently added Taubman’s bio of Khrushchev to my “Related Reading” page on my sister website about presidential biographies. From what I gathered, that biography is excellent, so I can’t wait to see how he does with Gorbachev!
