Leonid Brezhnev. Velichie i tragediia cheloveka i strany [Leonid Brezhnev. The greatness and tragedy of man and country]
The book by Suzanne Shattenberg, a professor of modern history and culture at the University of Bremen, is a political biography of Leonid Brezhnev, who held senior management positions in the USSR for 18 years (from 1964 to 1982). The author recreates Brezhnev's life from the moment of birth in the village of Kamenskoe in December 1906. The readers are offered the image of a politician who, in his work at the highest party and state posts, was genuinely driven by the interests of preserving peace and raising the standard of living of the Soviet people. His personal political experience played a significant role in this. Brezhnev appears not as a hero of jokes, not as a poster character in history, but as a living person. The book is based on publications and documents from the archives of Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Kazakhstan, as well as many Western European countries.
