Product Description
This is a 20 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the History of Russia - The Soviet Era. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

The first few years of Soviet rule were marked by an extraordinary outburst of social and cultural change. Although the Bolsheviks had maintained complete control of the economy during the civil war, Lenin decided at its end that a partial return to a market economy would help the country recover from the destruction of the previous 3 years.

His New Economic Policy, or NEP, brought about a period of relative prosperity, allowing the young Soviet government to consolidate its political position and rebuild the country's infrastructure. Although the country still faced enormous challenges, there was a widespread sense of optimism and opportunity. Lenin's death in 1924 was followed by an extended and extremely divisive struggle for power in the Communist Party.

By the latter part of the decade, Joseph Stalin had emerged as the victor, and he immediately set the country on a much different course.

In 1990, the Soviet Union itself began to unravel. Its own constituent republics began to issue declarations of independence. Demonstrations against the government and the party intensified. The economy worsened, food shortages became a problem, and the crime rate began to skyrocket.

Gorbachev, caught between popular demands for more radical reform and party demands for the re-imposition of strict control, failed to satisfy either side. Military units were dispatched to enforce the authority of the new government, but they were met with overwhelming popular protest led by Yeltsin and the other presidents of the republics.

By the end of the year the Soviet Union had been voted out of existence, to be replaced by a Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). On December 25, Gorbachev resigned, and on midnight of December 31, the Soviet flag atop the Kremlin was replaced by the Russian tricolour flag.
