Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatch from our warehouse in the UK.

From Library JournalSuny (political science, Univ. of Chicago; Looking Toward Ararat, Indiana Univ., 1993) is a highly regarded scholar of the late Soviet Union. His present work, a textbook survey of that country's turbulent tale, charts the traumatic and painful transformations of Russia from decrepit tsarist autocracy to post-Soviet chaos, corruption, and uncertainty. Suny's tone is judicious, and his judgment that the Soviet experiment's great achievement of rough modernization of a backward, agrarian society, which produced nonetheless an incompletely modernized society for the 1980s and 1990s, is well supported. He is particularly good on World War II, its cost, and its impact. Each chapter has suggestions for further readings, with a chronology of dates at the end. This is and should remain a valuable reference text.?Robert H. Johnston, McMaster Univ., Hamilton, OntarioCopyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Ronals Suny has written a splendid book, likely to become the standard history of the Soviet Union. If offers a wide-ranging, detailed, but shaply focused analytical narrative...It is a well-balanced account in every sense...In contrast to the moralizing that has passed for historical analysis in some quarters recently, Suny manages to write cirtically about the Soveit experiment, sparing us none of its horrors, yet registering its achievements...Throughout the writing is lucid, spiced by the telling example, quotation, or anecdote. Ultimately, however, what makes the book so impressive is its breadth of human sympathy. Undergraduates, start here!--The Russian Review
