The Soviet Union and eastern Europe (Scholastic world cultures) by Hope T Ludlow. Translate Series Title. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher.

State Anthem of the Soviet Union. The "State Anthem of the Soviet Union" (Russian: Государственный гимн Советского Союза, IPA: ) was the national anthem of the Soviet Union and the regional anthem of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic from 1944 to 1991 and 1990 respectively, replacing "The Internationale"

Counterculture in the Soviet Union, a country cut off from the West by the infamous Iron Curtain, consisted of an open youth rebellion against ideological and cultural stagnation, writes Misha Buster, author of Hooligans of the 80s. His book is one of several reputable sources that records stories of people who lived in the final days of the USSR. After the Soviet youth got acquainted with the Western world during the Khrushchev Thaw period, many other common subcultures became popular in the country, including hippies. On the surface, hippies in the USSR were quite similar to those in the United States. However American hippies mainly rebelled against consumerism, while their Soviet counterparts defied a conformist state, writes William Jay Risch in his book Soviet ‘Flower’ Children.

Soviet Union became the first communist country after taking power in 1922. Soon after the end of communism in USSR, the system also weakened in other parts of the world and now very few countries (China, Cuba, N. Korea et. have the communist system. It resulted in the USA being the only super power as there was no country so much powerful (militarily, economically and scientifically) that could replace USSR as the second superpower. They declared that the soviet union was disbanded. End of cold war, End of arms race, end of ideological confrontations.

The Soviet Union paid the harshest price: though the numbers are not exact, an estimated 26 million Soviet citizens died during World War II, including as many as 11 million soldiers. At the same time, the Germans suffered three-quarters of their wartime losses fighting the Red Army. It was the Western Allies’ extreme good fortune that the Russians, and not themselves, paid almost the entire ‘butcher’s bill’ for, accepting 95 per cent of the military casualties of the three major powers of the Grand Alliance," writes Hastings. That it was yet able to turn back the German invasion is testament to the courage of the Soviet war effort. But it came at a shocking price.

In the late Soviet Union Soviet popular culture was characterized by fascination with American popular culture as exemplified by the blue jeans craze. In arts, the liberalization of all aspects of life starting from the Khrushchev Thaw created a possibility for the evolution of various forms of non-formal, underground and dissident art; still repressed, but no longer under the immediate threat of Gulag labor camps  . But the native balladeer Vladimir Vysotsky, widely popular in the Soviet Union, was denied official recognition because of his iconoclastic lyrics.
