The Last Years of the Soviet Empire: Snapshots from 1985-1991


Shlapentokh collects essay "snapshots" of current events that detail the progression of perestroika and glasnost. The essays and accompanying narrative form a kind of political diary, reflecting not only the facts of history, but the author's perspective as a Soviet/Western observer.
