Editorial Reviews

The entire Soviet period is covered in the course of the volume, but particular attention is paid to the post-Stalin years and especially the 1980s--a time of dramatic leadership change. The themes include the changing rates of personnel turnover within leadership institutions; the changing structure of power at the top; generational aspects of leadership change; and the process whereby top leaders consolidate power and establish their authority as well as the impact of this process on policy, both foreign and domestic. Paper edition (unseen), $12.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
