Description

The tumultuous events taking place in Eastern Europe have resulted in an avalanche of publications in English about that part of the world. This volume, a continuation of the late Stephan M. Horak's series of bibliographies covering books published in English about the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe up to 1985, picks up where Mr. Horak left off. It provides a selective bibliography of books concerning Russia and the Soviet Union that were published in English from 1986 to 1991. Descriptive annotations of more than 1,400 titles contain bibliographic information, brief abstracts, and citations of major reviews when available. Focusing on the social sciences and humanities, this volume excludes pure science and technology, occasional papers, serial publications, publications under 50 pages in length, and those not readily available to the general academic and public library user. At a time when interest is high and material is proliferating, this guide is a must.
