Overview

In The Soviet Colossus, Michael Kort revisits the turning points in Russia's modern history - from the fall of the old regime to the establishment of the Bolshevik dictatorship and Stalinist totalitarianism; from the reforms and counter-reforms of Khrushchev and Brezhnev to the tumultuous years of change under Mikhail Gorbachev and Boris Yeltsin. This new edition brings the story up through the first decade of the twenty-first century and the unchallenged leadership of Vladimir Putin. Which strands of Russia's past are being woven into the fabric of the present and which are being allowed to fade, for good or for ill?

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This short history of modern Russia begins with an overview of the historical background that shaped Russia as it entered the 20th century. Kort (social science, Boston U.) then focuses on the pivotal events that led in turn to the establishment of the Bolshevik dictatorship, Stalinist totalitarianism, the reforms and counter- reforms of Krushchev and Brezhnev, and the dramatic changes during the Gorbachev years, culminating in the collapse of the Soviet system. The final section considers the first decade of post-Soviet Russia, including the loss of empire, the attempt to create a Russian-style capitalist democracy, and the legacy of Boris Yeltsin's presidency.
