Politics, Society And Nationality Inside Gorbachev's Russia

Politics, Society And Nationality Inside Gorbachev's Russia
Edited by Seweryn Bialer
Westview Press, 1989, 246 pp. $28.50 Purchase

Amid the torrent of publications in the West about the changing Soviet Union under Gorbachev, this one has a special claim to be noticed in that the authors look to long-term trends as well as to the rapid succession of recent reforms and the clash of personalities at the top. The roster of authors includes Archie Brown (on ideology), Gail Lapidus (on civil society) and Alexander Motyl (on the nationality problem). The editor contributes, in addition to a piece on the 19th Party Conference, the most informative account of the Yeltsin affair to be found anywhere.
