      The author of The Soviet Paradox: External Expansion, Internal Decline Seweryn Bialer has a more mixed assessment of Brezhnev's reign. Bialer notes that the era was a time of "lost opportunities", but admits that the economic growth during Brezhnev's first years weakened "the rationale for radical reform".   On Stalin’s Team: The Years of Living Dangerously in Soviet Politics will be published by Princeton next year. • To order Stalin: Paradoxes of Power, for £24 (RRP £30) go to Author: Sheila Fitzpatrick.

        Three years later, on Novem , the Soviet Union detonated its first hydrogen bomb on the same principle of radiation implosion. Both .   Your ability to lead your nation is your supreme weapon, the strategy game Hearts of Iron IV lets you take command of any nation in World War II; the most engaging conflict in world history.

      Geoffrey Hosking, one of the world's preeminent scholars of Russian history, provides a unique perspective on the rapid changes the country experienced in the late s. Other books have focused on the political changes that took place under Gorbachev; Hosking's lively analysis illuminates the social, cultural, and historical developments that created the need--and openness--for sweeping. The posts I've written about Soviet economic history, collected in one place. Best enjoyed if you listen to the Soviet anthem -best anthem ever- at the same : Jose Luis Ricon.

The last five years have brought such extraordinary changes to Germany and Europe as to make the previous forty years of Cold War existence seem deceptively placid and well- ordered by comparison.

The collapse of communist rule in East Germany in the midst of massive demonstrations against the Honecker regime in late were only the beginning.
