Revolution Road

Deep Dive

Foreign Policy presents a special report on the Soviet collapse two decades later -- and why it matters now, in today’s revolutionary times. As the protesters of the Arab Spring invoke the ghosts of Moscow 1991 in seeking to topple their own autocratic regimes, we’ve assembled an all-star cast of some of the world’s leading Russia watchers, from two Pulitzer Prize winners to one of Boris Yeltsin’s top lieutenants, to help us ponder the enduring, and never more relevant, mysteries of how the Communist regime crumbled – and the state of the former Soviet Union today. Be warned: Everything you think you know about the Soviet collapse is wrong.
