The Soviet Union under Brezhnev by William J Tompson( )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Soviet Union under Brezhnev provides an accessible post-Soviet perspective on the history of the USSR from the mid-1960s to the mid-1980s. It challenges both the 'evil empire' image of the USSR that was widespread in the early 1980s and the 'stagnation' label attached to the period by Soviet reformers under Gorbachev." "The book makes use of a range of memoirs, interviews, archival documents and other sources not available before 1990, to place Brezhnev and his epoch in a broader historical context." "While stopping well short of a full-scale rehabilitation of Brezhnev, Tompson rejects the prevailing image of the Soviet leader as a colourless nonentity, drawing attention to Brezhnev's real political skills, as well as his faults, and to the systematic roots of many of the problems he faced."--Jacket
