The Hidden Hand: Gorbachev And The Collapse Of East Germany

By Jeffrey Gedmin
American Enterprise Institute, 1992

This is a solid and valuable book. Although principally a student of German affairs, Gedmin writes surely about the Soviet end of the story. This allows him to examine the process leading to the collapse in east Germany from both sides, and to trace the links between the two. He has done his research carefully, and he lays the analysis out lucidly and briefly.
