This is the first volume of a new integrated documentary history of the Soviet Union. The Soviet story looms large in history syllabuses across the world. This book will be a valuable resource for students at all levels, drawing upon the primary material that has come to light since the collapse of Communist rule in 1991. Combining lucid narrative commentary and a rich selection of evocative documents, it provides a lively entree to current debate over humanity's most momentous and tragic experiment. This volume is organized into three chronologically distinct parts, subdivided thematically and embedding over 200 documents. Key terms and references to individuals, places, events and institutions are explained and guidance provided on significant features of the primary sources. Edward Acton is Professor of Modern European History at the University of East Anglia. Tom Stableford is Assistant Librarian, Slavonic and East European Collections, Bodleian Library, Oxford.
