Descriere RO

Some journalists have been fortunate or skillful enough to be in the right place at the right time as tumultuous events have unfolded. One such man is the journalist and politician Vagif Guseynov, and now, for the first time, he has collected his accounts of these remarkable encounters in a single volume.
In this eclectic treasure trove of adventures and characters, Guseynov shares his fascinating insight into some of the key personalities, events, and ideas that, as the twentieth century rose to its climactic finale, were destined to shape our world. Throughout the course of his long career in journalism, government, and politics, he has interviewed many RussiansÔÇöKhrushchev, Brezhnev, Kosygin, Yeltsin, Andropov, Gorbachev, and ShevardnadzeÔÇöbut also many other major figures, including Kissinger and Rice, the Castros, Guevara, Ceausescu, and H├Ânecker. Away from the front line of conflict and politics, we meet the Gandhis, Pope John Paul II, Lech Walesa, Yuri Gagarin, and many others. Guseynov even takes us with him on trips to Cambodia, Vietnam, and North Korea, providing a fascinating window onto places that were largely forbidden at that time to the Western world.
