The Rise of Russia and the Fall of the Soviet Empire

The Rise of Russia and the Fall of the Soviet Empire Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
