The Soviet Experiment : Ronald Grigor Suny :

Suny goes into a great deal of detail on early political decisions made by early revolutionaries and leaders during the first decade of the Soviet Union, but as the narrative gets closer to the present, less detail is given and the book becomes more broad sweeps which is actually what I expected from the whole text.


Suny emphasizes a number of different lenses for approaching Soviet history, including economic, political, cultural, social and gender. Now thoroughly revised in its second edition, The Soviet Experiment examines the complex themes of Soviet history, ranging from the last tsar of the Russian empire to the first president of the Russian republic. So for an overarching look at the development of Modern Russia, with a broad eye and with as much objectivity as he could muster, I recommend this book.
