about

Almost twenty years after the Soviet Unions' end, what are we to make of its existence? Was it a heroic experiment, an unmitigated disaster, or a viable if flawed response to the modern world?Taking a fresh approach to the study of the Soviet Union, this Very Short Introduction blends political history with an investigation into the society and culture at the time. Mike Lovell examines aspects of patriotism, political violence, poverty, and ideology; and provides answers to some of thebig questions about the Soviet experience.
