Table of Contents

"The Soviet Colossus" is an introduction to 20th-century Soviet history within the context of Russian history as a whole. Kort begins by showing how and why the Tsars developed powerful centralised institutions that undermined the political, civil and economic freedoms of the Russian people. He then goes on to explain how the Bolsheviks' attempt to build socialism in a backward country produced the strong centralised bureaucracy that was characteristic of the Soviet Union. The post-Stalin years of half-way reforms are surveyed for new insights. In the concluding chapters Kort discusses Gorbachev's place in the continuum of Russian and Soviet history, and his role in unleashing the force that finally toppled the Soviet colossus.

I am reading this book for an ECON class in college and it is great. Very informative with incredible detail. It illustrates the development of economic thought very well. Highly recommended.

Purchased the etextbook thinking it would work for iPad, considering every other etextbook supplier has made it possible for the iPad, but etextbooks cannot be opened on the nook app, it has to be the nook study app that is not available yet. Good thing is I got my money back, bad is that I have to go and use 3 different websites for my ebooks for this semester.
