In this seminal work, the eminent British writer and historian Brian Crozier tells the history of the Soviet Empire -- its birth, life, and sudden death. The book begins at the beginning, in 1917, when the oversized dreams of Lenin and the happenstance of events conspired to change the course of history. In meticulous detail, Crozier follows the Soviet conquests across Europe and into Asia, Africa, and the Western Hemisphere. Using recently declassified information from Soviet archives, he reveals the dark underside of a regime whose march toward supremacy resulted in decades of terror and the loss of 100 million lives.Provocative, comprehensive, and majestic in scope, The Rise and Fall of the Soviet Empire is the definitive account of history's most turbulent days.
