There is some interesting discussion here about the use of the psychological approach in profiling Khrushchev. This lends Professor Taubman and interesting angle on many of the issues of the Khrushchev period. Neither inherently western, nor revisionist in outlook, he provides a fascinating insight into a very complex man.
Professor Taubman's excellent book can be found via Amazon HERE and we can look forward to his newest work, a biography of Gorbachev, due in a few years. I have also attached a very brief summary of the main points of our discussion for revision purposes.
I would be very interested in any comments or feedback on this episode. Remember to subscribe to the whole series using the links on the right. Mobile users will need to click on these or the image.
