An analysis of the developments within the Soviet Union at large which finally led to the collapse of the uni-party and the emergence of a multi-party system.
This book is a study of the changing institutional structures of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union as it sought as an organization to come to grips with the serious challenges to its position and power that arose after 1985. It highlights the internal mechanisms, procedures and debates which unrolled within its ranks as it tried to chalk out a role for itself in the fast changing political landscape of the country.
