    1. Boris Yeltsin Catherine A. Fitzpatrick

      Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin was the first President of the Russian Federation, serving from 1991 to 1999.Yeltsin came to power with a wave of high expectations On 12 June 1991 he was elected president of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic with 57% of the vote, becoming the first popularly elected president But Yeltsin never recovered his popularity after a series of economic and political crises in Russia in the 1990s The Yeltsin era was marked by widespread corruption, economic collapse, and enormous political and social problems By the time he left office, Yeltsin had an approval rating of two percent by some estimates.Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in December 1991, Yeltsin, vowing to transform Russia s socialist command economy into a free market economy, endorsed a program of price liberalization and privatization As a result, a handful of people were able to enrich themselves while arguably stamping out competitors.In August 1991, Yeltsin won international plaudits for casting himself as a democrat and defying the August coup attempt of 1991 by the members of Soviet government opposed to perestroika He left office widely unpopular with the Russian population as an ineffectual and ailing autocrat He either acted as his own prime minister until June 1992 or appointed men of his choice, regardless of parliament His confrontations with parliament climaxed in the October 1993 Russian constitutional crisis, when Yeltsin called up tanks to shell the Russian White House, blasting out his opponents in parliament Later in 1993, Yeltsin imposed a new constitution with strong presidential powers, which was approved by referendum in December.Just hours before the first day of 2000, Yeltsin made a surprise announcement of his resignation, leaving the presidency in the hands of Vladimir Putin.

    2. After reading Gromyko s book, I wanted of that and I decided also to read Jeltsin s story and the book by Gorbachev Well, this Rusland, mijn verhaal was okay, but for me nothing than that While reading I got the feeling of the sad little boy that seeks recognition for the fact that he s been treated badly by the big boys in higher classes.A kind of it all happened to me but it was not at all my fault idea That made contents of the story not less interesting, but a lot difficult to read I some [...]


    3. I liked the way he write the book Quite interesting to see a point of view from one of the most powerful man in the world In Russia not many presidents if any survived their time Boris Yeltsin did.Presidency, the transition, new World Order, communist regime, the first Russian liberal, first president of Russia, voluntary departure, the predecessor Vladimir Putin, domestic policies, top policy, chess game, war in Chechnya, war in Yugoslavia.
