"perestroika, which means 'reconstructing', is Mikhail Gorbachev's own account of the revolution he is presently implementing in the USSR. Seventy years after the October Revolution, it constitutes a revolution in attitudes, in ideas and in practice that entails a radical alteration of both domestic and foreign policy. Perestroika is the next stage in socialist history, when greater responsibility, initiative, openness and a spirit of 'emulation' are to be strongly encouraged in the people through a real sense of personal involvement. It is an unprecedented blueprint for change that can only have profound implications for the world."
