Panic of '08?
The book intermixed fictional and real personages. After the main character brokers a solution that addresses many of the interests of the leading countries, the book ends with Raisa Gorbacheva telling her husband that the secret to success is contained within the proverb, "Ruka ruku moyet" (One hand washes the other)--e.g. you find a community of interests to hold the major players together.
An interesting re-read in light of today's developments.
