Explores the role of Communist Party leaders of five Soviet Republics to show some of the tensions and texture that characterized the ruling institution many westerners thought and think of as monolithic and all-powerful. Drawing on the press in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, and Belorussia between Stalin's death the collapse of authority under Gorbachev, describes the nature of republican power and its implications both for effective government and reform.
