Perestroika, which means "restructuring", is Mikhail Gorbachev's own account of the policies he is currently implementing in the USSR. Created 70 years after the October Revolution, perestroika constitutes a revolution in ideas, attitudes and practice that entails a radical alteration of Russian domestic and foreign policy. Frank in his criticism of the past, the Soviet leader details his convictions for tolerance, understanding and world peace. He presents a coherent vision which he offers as an alternative to the current divisions and tensions of the international political scene. Mikhail Gorbachev has been the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union's Central Committee, Chairman of the USSR Council of Defence and Member of the Praesidium of the USSR Supreme Soviet since March 1985.
