The Eastern Bloc and the End of the Cold War

Educational
profile
This is a big topic and should be seen in two halves: the first dealing with crises that the Soviet Union was able to overcome, the second dealing with crises that brought about the Soviet Union’s collapse and the end of the Cold War. Each is dealt with a thoroughness and yet a clarity - setting each crisis in its context and providing detailed explanations, different perspectives and the means to enable you to form your own different conclusion - which, I hope, is a hallmark of all these books of mine. This one even steps back to look at the whole concept of control and how it is maintained in liberal democracies compared with authoritarian regimes such as the Soviet Union (or Saddam Hussein’s Iraq or Nazi Germany) and so something that should prove useful to you beyond this specific topic.
