Title

It fits!

Description

As Chubarov (2001) put it, in a rapidly changing world, it was the “revolution of the microchip and the computer” taking place in the West that jeopardized the Soviet Union’s status as a great power under Leonid Brezhnev. The inability to incorporate the latest scientific and technological innovations into the production processes became the lid that sealed the coffin of the Soviet economy.
