This tome is pretty heavy going - and does expect a certain knowledge of political science - but as a comprehensive summary of hundreds of years of Russian and Soviet history, I'm sure it can't be beaten. Even allows for the odd moment of humour (though not many during the Stalin years...) However, the Third Edition finishes just as the CIS comes into existence, so a more updated version may be needed or is perhaps already out there?

Neatly organised little book, easy to dip into, good balance of anecdotal and factual information
