Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This is an extremely dramatic story, which no one predicted, and which is of great importance for the undoubtedly very turbulent future developments in the successor states of the Soviet Union."--Peter Reddaway, George Washington University, and former Director of the Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars

"Dunlop's book is a comprehensive and timely history of the remarkable transformation of the once mighty Soviet Empire. Dunlop is a superb stylist. His writing is lucid, his point of view clear, and his prose eminently readable."--Bruce D. Porter, Associate Director, Olin Institute for Strategic Studies, Harvard University

Synopsis:

This is the first work to set one of the great bloodless revolutions of the twentieth century in its proper historical context. John Dunlop pays particular attention to Yeltsin's role in opposing the covert resurgence of Communist interests in post-coup Russia, and faces the possibility that new institutions may not survive long enough to sink roots in a traditionally undemocratic culture.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [327]-369) and index.
