Taking the Soviet collapse - the most cataclysmic event of the recent past - as a case study, this text engages students in the exercise of historical analysis, interpretation and explanation. In exploring the question posed by the title, the author introduces and applies such organizing concepts as great power conflict, imperial decline, revolution, ethnic conflict, colonialism, economic development, totalitarian ideology, and transition to democracy in a most accessible way. Questions and controversies, and extracts from documentary and literary sources, anchor the text at key points. This book is intended for use in history and political science courses on the Soviet Union or more generally on the 20th century.

From Library Journal:

The reversion of the Soviet Union to Russia has generated a cottage industry of assessments. Strayer (SUNY at Brockport) has produced a nicely written college text on the subject that would be useful to both political science and history students. Narrower in focus than Michael Kort's recent The Soviet Colossus (M.E. Sharpe, 1996. 4th ed.) or Paul Dukes's A History of Russia (Duke Univ., 1998. 3d. ed.), and complementary to Fred Coleman's The Decline and Fall of the Soviet Empire (LJ 5/1/96), Strayer's study not only incorporates basic historical facts but also muses on how historians do their work. Two-thirds of his book deals with the period after Mikhail Gorbachev came to power in the mid-1980s, and Strayer thoroughly examines what Gorbachev tried to accomplish and why he failed. Those with a general curiosity about the denouement of the late, great Soviet Union will benefit from Strayer's intelligent survey. For most collections.?Edward Goedeken, Iowa State Univ. Lib., Ames
