Summary

The Soviet Experiment examines the complex themes of Soviet history from the last tsar of the Russian empire to the first president of the Russian republic. Ronald Grigor Suny examines the legacies left by former Soviet leaders and explores successor states and the challenges they now face.He captures familiar as well as little-known events: the crowds on the streets during the February Revolution, Stalin's collapse into a near-catatonic state after Hitler's invasion, Yeltsin's political maneuvering and public grandstanding.
