POL 300 Week 3 Discussion: The Collapse of the Soviet Union

Roskin discusses three theories about causes of the collapse of the Soviet Union. Choose one of these theories and explain how it relates to the collapse of the USSR, and assess and justify whether it relates to its internal or external foreign policy. 

Discuss whether all three of the causes are equally at fault, or whether one, more than the other, is the basic culprit of the demise of the USSR.
