Instigator of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and author of the Brezhnev Doctrine which governed Soviet relations with the rest of Eastern Europe, Brezhnev was the last of the Cold War warriors. This new Seminar Study provides an introduction to a key period in the history of the USSR. The approach is thematic rather than chronological, with sections examining politics and policy under Brezhnev, including chapters on leadership politics, domestic policy, and foreign policy. Additional sections examine economy and society, with chapters on economic performance, demographic and social change, and culture. For those interested in Russian history.
