About this book

For more than a decade Mikhail Gorbachev has been engaged in working to protect the earth and its inhabitants via the organization he founded in 1992, Green Cross International. In an age when ecological crises, poverty and military conflicts are humanity's main challenges, Gorbachev urges us to stop regarding these problems in isolation. The man who changed the destiny of Russia, Europe and the world is now calling for a global and comprehensive Perestroika (reform) for the twenty-first century.

Based on his many years of experience in international politics, Gorbachev appeals for urgent action founded on a broad vision, including a strengthening of the UN and reforms to the World Bank, the World Trade Organization and the International Monetary Fund.

MIKHAIL GORBACHEV, born in 1931, was General Secretary of the Communist Party of the USSR from 1985 to 1991. As head of state he introduced the radical turnaround of his country's foreign and internal policies which led to a complete transformation of the Eastern Bloc, enabling the reunification of Germany to take place in 1990. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1990, and in 1991 he resigned from his political offices. In 1992 he founded Green Cross International, an organization that works for peace, justice, and the environment in over 30 countries.
