The collapse of the Soviet Union and its replacement by the Commonwealth of Independent States has renewed interest in Russian and Soviet history. Yet, the plethora of materials has created the need for basic references that will add background and in-depth analysis that are lacking in many journalistic reports. This selected bibliography includes the best currently available works on Sovietology in the English language. The citations include books, pamphlets, and a selection of articles culled from scholarly periodicals. A selection of reference books, a glossary, and author/title and subject indexes round out this guide to the literature on the tumultuous seventy-four history of the Soviet Union. With its inclusion of works on ideology, literature, science, education, and ethic groups as well as history and political developments, this volume is indispensible for all involved with Soviet Studies.
