 About the Book 

Praised by some, lamented by others, few events have had as much impact on the world as the collapse of the Soviet Union in the fateful year of 1991. The dissolution of Soviet hegemony was referred to by many as the greatest geopolitical catastropheMorePraised by some, lamented by others, few events have had as much impact on the world as the collapse of the Soviet Union in the fateful year of 1991. The dissolution of Soviet hegemony was referred to by many as the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century. Many Russians now regret that they let Soviet socialism vanish. This book focuses on the impact that it had on ordinary Russian citizens and provides an inside look at the decade of anarchy that followed through the eyes of the people who lived it.
