This is a fascinating doc about the August 1991 coup.

Clearly the coup, led by die-hards frustrated by the social turmoil of the
perestroika market reforms, ACCELERATED the decomposition and collapse of
the USSR by the end of 1991.  The coup leaders accelerated a process they
were trying to arrest.
