Fragment of a book
A. Rachkov’s book tells of the work of the embassy of the USSR in South Yemen from 1986–1991, and of Yemeni unification. Not only does the author describe colleagues’ everyday life, meetings with heads of various levels, problems in the embassy, biographical facts; he also puts forward his own view of many major political processes of that period, including those which brought the socialist system to its knees and resulted in the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The book is directed at students, teachers in diplomatic academies and also at a wide circle of readers.
