About this title


Based on the Reith Lectures delivered for the BBC in the autumn of 1988, Hosking (Russian history, U. of London) provides a refreshing perspective that focuses less on the political changes under Gorbachev than on the social, cultural, and historical developments that created a need for and openness to political and economic change. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

From the Back Cover:

One of the world's preeminent scholars of the Soviet Union with many personal contacts there, Geoffrey Hosking provides a unique perspective on the rapid changes the country is experiencing. Other books have focused on the political changes taking place under Gorbachev; Hosking's lively analysis illuminates the social, cultural, and historical developments that have created the need-and openness-for sweeping political and economic change.
