The Russian New Right: Right-Wing Ideologies in the Contemporary USSR

By Alexander Yanov

Institute of International Studies, University of California, 1978, 185 pp.

Yanov, one of the most perceptive and stimulating Russian political writers now resident in the West, here describes and documents the current of neonationalism present in Russia among non-Marxist dissidents and also in some tendencies of the regime. His conclusions regarding the importance of this current for the post-Brezhnev period deserve a careful reading in the West.
