2 The Breakup of the Soviet Union: Opposing Viewpoints
Barbour, William U.S.A. Greenhaven Pr 1994 1565100670 / 9781565100671 Soft cover Very Good Ex-Library 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

(The editors of this series quote Thomas Jefferson as saying "difference of opinion leads to inquiry, and inquiry to truth". The editors believe that these books will give readers a deeper understanding of the issues debated and an appreciation of the complexity of even seemingly simple issues when good and honest people disagree. With the breakup of the Soviet Union, the all-pervasive ideology that prescribed and controlled every sphere of Soviet life for over seventy years was swept away. The leaders of most of the republics, supported by the majority of their citizens, say they are committed to Western-style governments and economies. And of course, reform is spoken about. While the majority of Russians support reforms, most have found that capitalism is less attractive than they had been led to believe. Furthermore, the end of communism has meant the end of social benefits, such as free health care, education and transportation. The viewpoints here examine the forces and events that led to the collapse of the Soviet Union and the consequences of the empire's disintegration, providing valuable insight into the region's policies, recent history, and relationship with the West.)
