Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Overall this is a good book that depicts the everyday life during the final years of the Soviet Union. Revealing how endemic the problems of a Planned State economy were back then and why Soviet Socialism had failed. The only issue though is it relied way too heavily on news articles and not enough citations in certain sections of their work. I wouldn't recommend this for the casual read, but more so for students of history who would want to compare with other works of the time period as well as what is available today for compare and contrast in developing as much of a precise picture of history as possible.
