review The Rise and Fall of Soviet Communism A History of 20th Century Russia

From the Oval Office to the streets of Moscow world leaders and ordinary citizens alike share concerns about Russia Can democracy survive there What does the future hold for the once expansive still powerful Russian nation Is Soviet Communism truly dead Top diplomats struggle daily with uestions. I ve listened to this as part of the TTC Great Lecture series Although outdated published during the Jeltsin presidency it gives some insights in the Russian politics The lessons focus mostly on the early Communist period WOII until the death of Stalin in 1953 The latter Communist years after Chroestjov are somewhat less touched upon This I found a pity However all in all a good introduction to Soviet Communism
