Mikhail Gorbachev was one of the most important political figures of the twentieth century. As secretary general of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and later executive president of the Soviet Union, President Gorbachev brought about the peaceful end of the Cold War while helping to introduce democratic reform to the Soviet Union and the countries of Eastern Europe. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1990 "for his leading role in the peace process which today characterizes important parts of the international community." Today, he continues to work toward a global vision for peace through the Gorbachev Foundation.
