To my mind Macauley has advantage of a clear, direct style, and having actually been researching and writing since the Khrushchev era. He is neither a historian out of touch with the contemporary situation, nor just an of-the-moment commentator without historical background.
This is a very well-informed and readble guide to the period, which crams plenty of facts and perceptive comment into its 400 pages. It has useful maps, but no photos,not a bad thing as space and money aren't taken up giving us the same old pictures of the Revolution, Stalin or Gorbachev for the 20th time.
You might judge out the other reviews and judge whether they are just malicious.
