Who's Who is Russia and the Soviet Union is a unique reference guide which examines the leading political, economic, cultural, military, scientific and sporting personalities from 1900-1991. Through analysis of figures such as Stalin, Brezhnev, Khrushchev, Yeltsin, Ratushinskaya and Sakharov, a comprehensive portrait of Russian and Soviet society in this era emerges. The book takes the reader up to the collapse of the Soviet Union and provides:
- detailed biographical information on each leading figure
- bibliographical references with entries as an aid to further research
- a comprehensive glossary of Russian terms, concepts and institutions and a useful chronology of events
- an accessible and user-friendly A-Z layout
- an invaluable guide for students, teachers, researchers, and the general reader alike.

"What emerges from reading the entries is not only a vivid account of the events in the individuals' lives but also details of the changing political, social, and economic conditions, with their ramifications, in Russia and her satellites during the twentieth century....[It contains] a refreshing blend of alternative subjects and provides a spotlight on many familiar names and events about which little has previously been collected in this format. Although the publication tends to focus primarily on the Communist influences in Russia during the twentieth century, it does contain a refreshing blend of alternative subjects and provides a spotlight on many familiar names and events about which little has previously been collected in this format. Scholars and laypersons alike will find it informative and convenient to use. Recommended for college and public libraries...." -"Booklist, 11/97 "Suitable for collections serving nonspecialists." -"Library Journal "[A] handy desktop guide, particularly for the novice or intermediate user, of the key personalities of Russian politics and society in the twentieth century. ...Naturally, in a book of this length, only the leading figures can be represented, but given that preimposed limitation, the author has done a good job of compiling a relatively comprehensive list. ... its timeliness, comprehensive perspective, and fresh style, should make it a welcome addition ...." -College & Research Libraries, March 1998
