Due to the pace of change in the USSR, monographs and textbooks in the field are quickly becoming dated. This book is the inaugural edition of a series that seeks to fill that void by presenting a biannual, systematic summary and analysis of developments in Soviet affairs. In this first volume, noted experts cover the years 1989-1990, examining the full range of political, economic, social, and ethnic changes of these two tumultuous years. Additional chapters focus on the Soviet Union's foreign relations and key developments abroad as well as at home. Scholars and students as well as general readers will find this series to be of great value as a means of staying current in an era of constant change.
