For more than twenty years, John N. Hazard's The Soviet System of Government has served as an indispensable guide to both the nature of the practical functions of Soviet government and the Soviet Union's probable direction as a world power. This revised fifth edition addresses these issues in light of the fundamental changes called for by the new Soviet Constitution of 1977, as well as other important changes that have occurred since the previous edition. In addition to reproducing the new constitution in its official translation, the fifth edition examines the new law of the Council of Ministries, the updated Communist party rules, and, for the first time, excerpts from the hard-to-find English translation of the Communist party program of 1961, now in force. It also provides a revised bibliography. This fifth edition of Hazard's work enhances its value as the best handbook ever published for the study of Soviet Russia.
