The XXI century will be a сentury either of total all-embracing crisis or of moral and spiritual healing that will reinvigorate humankind. It is my conviction that all of us - all reasonable political leaders, all spiritual and ideological movements, all  faiths - must help in this transition to a triumph of humanism and justice, in making the XXI century a century of a new human renaissance.

Mikhail Gorbachev congratulates Archie Brown on his 80th birthday


Dear Archie,

Арчи Браун и Михаил Горбачев. 1993 г.

My heartfelt congratulations on your jubilee birthday! On this day, I recall everything that has been binding the two of us for many years. You are one of the most profound scholars of the political and ideological processes of the twenty-first century. You were among the first to appreciate the scale and nature of the changes brought to our country by perestroika, and you were able to convey your understanding of those events to the readers and, equally important, to policy-makers. I know that your book the Gorbachev Factor is still an essential text for scholars and experts.

So on this day let me wish you good health, well-being and success in continuing your scholarly work. I am sure that in our complex times your contribution will continue to carry weight and value for the people. 

A warm handshake, and best wishes to your loved ones.

Mikhail Gorbachev
