Peace, Glasnost, and Perestroika Introduction This paper is centered on the philosophy of Mikhail Gorbachev, chosen by Time as Man of the Decade, and awarded Nobel Prize for peace, January, 1990. It is within the context of news reports of transcendental significance – such as the fall and demise of communism in Russia, following the aborted coup ouster of Soviet President Gorbachev; the dissolution of the USSR, and now the resignation of Gorbachev as Soviet President that this paper is written. Gorbachev’s leadership may have already sunk into the nadir of insignificance, and Gorbachev the man, may soon slip away into the oblivion, but his philosophy remains a part of history’s political philosophy.
