Nobel peace prize winner and Chairman of the Supreme Soviet Mikhail Gorbachev was born February 3, 1931. As a law student, Gorbachev became a member of the Communist Part of the Soviet Union. Gorbachev is known for contributing to the resolution of the Cold War. Along with meeting with former President Ronald Regan, he announced new polices for the Soviet Union. These polices meant the withdrawal of Soviet troops in Central Europe. In 1987 Gorbachev was Time Magazines Man of the year and only two years later he was featured as Time's Man of the Decade. Following these removal acts and awards from Time Magazine, Gorbachev was placed as the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1990. Gorbachev started leading the Soviet Union towards new political policies that included a less communistic and a more democratic government with free elections. The Soviet Union experienced their first free elections in 1989. Despite his hard efforts to make the Soviet Union a more stabilized and free democracy he survived a coup in 1991 and was known as the first Soviet leader to resign office in 1992. Though Gorbachev is still living his legacy is viewed differently among people. Most people consider him a noble man that helped end the violence of the Soviet Union during the Cold War and the democratization of Eastern Europe. He was unpopular his first year in office because of the attempt to reduce alcohol consumption and in 1990 his approval with the Soviet Union fell dramatically as their economic status also dropped.
