How did the Soviet Union's hold on Eastern Europe come to an end?
In this lesson, you will learn about how Mikhail Gorbachev's 'new thinking' changed Eastern Europe. You will examine how Eastern Europeans responded to the end of the Brezhnev Doctrine and will study the chain of events that his reforms set in motion. Finally, you will evaluate why these changes happened - was Gorbachev alone responsible for the USSR's loss of control over Eastern Europe or were other factors also at play?
