Dramatic and confusing changes in what used to be the Soviet Union have transformed the world in which we live. This fourth edition of Stephen White's best-selling introductory text has been revised throughout and examines the full cycle of this period of revolutionary change from its Brezhnevite origins to the first turbulent years of Yeltsin's troubled presidency. After Gorbachev will continue to provide an unrivaled guide to the processes of transition, upheaval and collapse that now characterize Russia and the post-Soviet republics.
