SOVIET BUT NOT RUSSIAN: The 'Other' Peoples of the Soviet Union
By William M. Mandel
Non-Russian ethnic minorities comprised nearly half the population of the former USSR, yet were then (and possibly now) largely unconsidered or misunderstood in the West. Armenians, Ukranians, Baltic peoples, Slavs, Central Asians, Near Eastern peoples - this book not only has the histories of these peoples, but is greatly enriched with hundred of personal interviews.
