Editorial Reviews

"I would highly recommend this book as a guide to the recent changes in the former Soviet Union. The authors clearly achieve their stated goal of introducing the history of the various non-Russian peoples of the former Soviet Union. I thought that the discussion of contemporary issues is especially helpful in outlining the major problems facing these newly independent countries....a convenient source of information on a subject that has been overlooked in the past."-Russian, East European and Central Asia Studies Newsletter
