Primary source documents, defector information, and secondary source periodicals, books, and journals document my contention that the CPSU under Gorbachev implemented the most ambitious deception program ever faced by the West since the NEP of Lenin. In this book, the reader will discover: >How Gorbachev sought to dismantle the "enemy image" of the USSR in order to cripple the American defense posture. >How the CPSU under Gorbachev continued support for Moscow's clients worldwide. >How Gorbachev, Yeltsin, and Putin continued to formulate war plans directed against the United States. >How the Soviets and their Communist allies initially stage-managed many of the "changes" in Eastern Europe during 1989 and 1990. >How the GULAGS remained open under Gorbachev, Yeltsin, and Putin. >How the CPSU ensured the development of crony capitalism during the post-Soviet period and much more....
