Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev will present the first five volumes
Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev will present the first five volumes from a 22-volume collection of his works Thursday at the 60th International Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, the publishers said.

The collection includes official speeches given by Gorbachev at Communist Party congresses during the Soviet era and during his trips across Russia and abroad, as well as at closed-door meetings with leading foreign politicians.

More than half the material is being published for the first time.

The books are set to become "a source of varied and unique information about the time when Gorbachev was one of the Soviet Union's leaders and especially about the years when he led the party and the country," a spokesman for the Ves Mir publishing house said Wednesday.

Gorbachev, a Nobel Peace Prize winner who is respected in the United States and Europe for the reforms that led to the collapse of the Soviet Union, was awarded the Liberty Medal in September for his role in ending the Cold War.

"The collection gives a possibility to follow up the development of Gorbachev as a politician and a unique political thinker," the spokesman said.

The International Book Fair opens Thursday and will last until October 19.
