The Former Soviet Union: Then and Now

“A five-book series on the former Soviet Union, these brief but balanced volumes contain enough information for an introduction to the subject, though only enough to supplement in a survey course, or serve as enough information to whet the appetite of students who may want to delve further into the topics. Each volume is colorful and eye-catching, continuing the yellow and red color scheme of the covers, each of which includes a map of the area being discussed, and the first page of each chapter mirrors the cover colors....this series deserves a place in all secondary school collections.”
