Soviet Bloc reading material?

Hi, I'm interested in expanding my knowledge about the world of hockey under the Soviet Bloc, somewhat beyond the Summit Series.

This includes USSR, Czech Republic, and any other significant hockey countries from the Bloc in that era.

Are there any online reading materials, or books I can purchase, that would help me out here?

That's a nice site with some good stuff. Check out a book by Lawrence Martin called "The Red Machine" - it is the best thing I've found so far.

Also, four books that feature a lot about Russian hockey in them that I've acquired but haven't been able to read yet:

Anatoli Tarasov - Road To Olympus
Stan Fischler - Red Line
Lawrence Martin - Behind the Red Line
Scott Young - War On Ice

Lawrence Martin's The Red Machine:The Soviet Quest to Dominate Canada's Game is the best book on Soviet hockey.
