Formation of the Soviet Union by Richard Pipes

Book Description

This is the history of the disintegration of the Russian Empire, and the emergence, on its ruins, of a multinational Communist state. The book explores how between 1917 and 1923, the Communists exploited the new nationalism of the people of the Ukraine, Belorussia, the Caucasus, Central Asia, and the Volga-Ural area, first to sieze power and then to expand into the borderlands.
