Long DescriptionIn this widely praised book, Vladislav Zubok argues that Western interpretations of the Cold War have erred by exaggerating either the Kremlin's pragmatism or its aggressiveness. Explaining the interests, aspirations, illusions, fears, and misperceptions of the Kremlin leaders and Soviet elites, Zubok offers a Soviet perspective on the greatest standoff of the twentieth century. Using recently declassified Politburo records, ciphered telegrams, diaries, and taped conversations, among other sources, Zubok offers the first work in English to cover the entire Cold War from the Soviet side. A Failed Empire provides a history quite different from those written by the Western victors. In a new preface for this edition, the author adds to our understanding of today's events in Russia, including who the new players are and how their policies will affect the state of the world in the twenty-first century.

The attributes are somewhat like fields. They are the individual data items that describe each product. Each product entry will have several attributes. There is no telling which attributes will be attached to each product but they all have the same basic format.

Here is an example of one attribute. When accessing the data feed API, you can get your data in XML or JSON format. Here it is displayed in XML format to make it a little easier to read through.

<attribute>
   <field_name>product</field_name>
   <group_name>Over View</group_name>
   <title>Product Name</title>
   <data_type>varchar</data_type>
   <data_type_description>short text</data_type_description>
   <has_linked_text>0</has_linked_text>
   <has_linked_extra>0</has_linked_extra>
</attribute>

In the above example you will find these elements:

Hopefully, this helps you understand the data attributes you find in the data feed API.
