内容説明

This textbook is designed to meet the need for an up-to-date account of Soviet politics written in the light of contemporary events in the now defunct Union. The spectacle of the rise, development and collapse of the Soviet Union - the great 20th-century empire and superpower - has fascinated contemporaries and provoked changes within both Europe and the world system. This book aims to provide a succinct overview of the political history of the Soviet Union, considered with hindsight from a contemporary perspective, together with an account of the achievements (and failures) of Gorbachev in the period of glasnost and perestroika, and a preliminary survey of Yeltsin's efforts to hold together a disintegrating Commonwealth. Covering the period from the Bolshevik Revolution to the presidency of Boris Yeltsin, this history of nearly a century of Soviet politics should be of interest to students, teachers and general readers alike.

内容説明

The Soviet Era gives a succinct, refreshing overview of the Soviet Union from the Bolshevik revolution in 1917 to its disintegration in 1991. After a prologue recounting the attempted coup d'etat of August 1991 and the events which followed, it looks at the development and the decline of the Soviet Union, with the perspective of hindsight provided by the opening up of public analysis and discussion during Gorbachev's period of glasnost and perestroika. Thus the years from 1917 to 1985 are discussed primarily in the light of their significance for glasnost, perestroika and the collapse of the Soviet Union. There are three chapters covering the time of revolution and civil war, Stalin's rule, and the problems and achievements of the post-Stalin period. An extended survey of the Gorbachev years follows, with two chapters on political developments, and one each on the Communist Party and the new phenomenon of political activity arising from the grass-roots. A third section discusses the vital policy areas of the economy, foreign affairs and defense. The last extended section of the book traces the effects of Soviet rule and its disintegration on the major nationalities of the Baltic states, Central Asia and the Caucasus. An epilogue summarizes the attempts to organize independent republics, and their association in the Commonwealth of Independent States. Overall the book provides an accessible, clear, readable survey of the history of the Soviet Union, suitable for students as well as the general reader.
