SOVDOCS is designed to overcome this situation. To assist research and teaching, it presents carefully chosen, full-text documents covering all major aspects of Soviet national life from the Bolshevik revolution to the demise of the USSR.
Volumes are organized by time periods and then by topics within these periods. Twelve or more volumes.

Each volume contains an introduction, headnotes, annotation, subject, name, place, institution indexes. $80 by subscription / $100 non-subscription.
