Much of Western news reporting on the USSR is lacking in substance and historical perspective. This volume provides general readers and scholars with major essays written by internationally respected specialists focusing on important topics in the Soviet Union. Subjects covered are not limited to foreign relations and domestic politics, but include economics, law and culture. Different views are provided - liberals and conservatives, Americans and non-Americans, professors and journalists, optimists and pessimists.
