Will the Soviet Union Survive?

Will the Soviet Union Survive Until 1984?
Amalrik
1980, 2nd ed.

Submitter: Russia is a big topic in the news right now, so I’m sure there are people looking for books about it. My public library has a massive section on Russian history and politics…nearly all of it from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. The biggest gem was this book predicting that the USSR would be destroyed in a nuclear war with China. Even the books about earlier Soviet history are hopelessly out of date. In the past 25 years, we’ve gained access to all kinds of sources that weren’t available during the Cold War. Go update your Russian history sections now, comrades!

Holly: But it’s historical! Just kidding.
