The Collapse of Communism
Bernard M. Gwertzman, Michael T. Kaufman
Random House Incorporated, 1991 - Political Science - 600 pages
1989 saw Communist regimes crumble under the weight of change. The Collapse of Communism brilliantly captured these events--and has become a work now used in colleges coast to coast. This updated edition, expanded by more than a third, brings into focus the crucial events of the 1990s, including the reunification of Germany, the independence moves by the Baltic States, the turmoil in Yugoslavia, and more.
