The Soviet Union 1917-1991, Paperback

The Soviet Union 1917-1991 Paperback

Part of the Longman History of Russia series


A second edition of this famous survey has been eagerly awaited.

When the first edition appeared Brezhnev was still in power, Gorbachev did not make it to the index, and the USSR was a superpower.

Today the Soviet experiment is over and the USSR no longer exists.

How? Why? Martin McCauley has reworked and greatly expanded his book to answer these questions, and to provide a complete account of the Soviet years.

Essential reading to an appreciation of recent history -- and to a better understanding of whatever happens next.
