Russia : The Soviet Period and After
A history of Russia since 1917, this text focuses on the history of the peoples of Russia, including the national minorities. It goes beyond political and economic history to explore how the people live and to discover what their aspirations and problems are. This edition contains new and revised coverage of the Breshnev "era of stagnation" and a history of the glasnost-perestroika period. This edition reflects the author's first-hand experiences as an eyewitness to the evolution of Soviet history and the established democracy, drawing on personal interviews with public figures and private citizens. New material from all periods of Soviet history is incorporated, including Stalin and the Terror and various "disinformation" campaigns based on the author's personal research in formerly secret archives.
