Moshe Lewin's Gorbachev Phenomenon is pretty good, although not a comprehensive overview like Zubok's (which is also very good and I second the recommendation)

You know, in terms of Soviet domestic politics, the secondary source I keep going to is Vladislav Zubok's A Failed Empire. It's very accessible. For primary sources, I'm no expert, but maybe something from Khrushchev's memoirs, or a bit of Samizdat literature? The latter could be a good discussion piece.
Quick suggestions on Latin America:
Stephen Rabe The Killing Zone: The United States Wages Cold War in Latin America (Oxford)
Clara Nieto The Masters of War: Latin America and US Aggression (Seven Stories Press)
Primary go to National Security Archives which is a private research organization.which has published lots of declassified documents.
Hope this is helpful.
