There are insightful examinations of rebellion and exile, famine, the anarchists of Russia, the growth of revolutionary activity before 1917, the Revolution itself, Lenin's return to Russia, and the early years of Communism. Also covered are major modern day topics such as the Cuban missile crisis, relations with China, trade, and military strength. This Third Edition features new maps charting the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe, the changing names of Russian cities, the emerging Asian republics, and individuals and institutions of the new Russia.
