Hardcover in publisher’s non price-clipped dust-jacket. 654 pages. Notes, Bibliography, Index. Illustrated with several political cartoons and five maps. Second printing. A history of Russia from 1917 until 1991, a society which never fully integrated the Communist ideals of its founders but has had trouble distancing itself from its Marxist legacy after the fall of the USSR. No previous ownership marks. A clean, square, fresh and unmarked copy. Fine in a fine dust-jacket.
