Current Digest of the Post-Soviet Press, The
Curr Digest Post Sov Press
The Current Digest of the Post-Soviet Press is a leading publication in the field of Soviet/Russian area studies. Each week, it presents a selection of Russian-language press materials, carefully translated into English. Intended for use in teaching and research, the translations are thus presented as documentary materials without elaboration or commentary, and state the opinions and views of the original authors, not the publishers of the journal. This unique publication, originally titled The Current Digest of the Soviet Press, was established during the Cold War, when Joseph Stalin was still in charge and the USSR was essentially inaccessible to the rest of the world. The Digest was an indispensible resource for news from the Soviet Union and provided access to key documents.
