The Soviet Union Since Stalin
The Soviet Union Since Stalin
Edited by Stephen F. Cohen, Alexander Rabinowitch and Robert
Indiana University Press, 1980, 352 pp.

This is not a systematic treatment of the post-Stalin years, since the domestic and international topics chosen vary with the expertise and tastes of the contributors.
