Widely acclaimed as the best one-volume survey text available, A History of Russia presents the whole span of Russia's history, from the origins of the Kievan state and the building of an empire, to Soviet Russia, the successor states, and beyond. Drawing on both primary sources and major interpretive works, this sixth edition updates its existing coverage of the social, economic, cultural, political and miliary events of Russia's past and includes a new chapter on the post-Gorbachev era as well as helpful updated biblipgraphies and reading source lists.
Examining contemporary issues such as the rise of Yeltsin, the nationalities question, and Russia's attempts to market capitalism, this sixth edition takes the study of Russia straight into the new millennium, continuing A History of Russia's nearly forty-year track record as the leader in the field.

Nicholas V. Riasanovsky, Sidney Hellman Ehrman Professor of European History, University of California, Berkeley.Review:
"I have used Riasanovsky's History of Russia for over 25 years in my Russian History classes. Although I have experimented with other texts, I have always returned to Riasanovsky for its excellent narrative, balance and objectivity. It is excellent."--Carl H. Wilson, Saint John's Prep School
"Best one-volume history of Russia available in English."--Robert H. Hewsen, Rowan University
"The only choice in a one-volume history of Russia."--Scott W. Palmer, Western Illinois University
"Very scholarly and thorough, like earlier editions."--Gregory Sandford, Principia College
"The value of this text lies not only in its unstinting accuracy and wide scope, but also its remarkable flexibility. Its judicious and economical approach to a wide variety of themes in Russian history make it suitable for adoption for any number of courses on the subject."--W. Arthur McKee, American University
"A well balanced text, eminently readable for undergraduates. It also includes recent materials (i.e., from the Gorbachev and Yeltsin eras)."--Emmett A. Shea, Worcester State College
"It does everything that an excellent textbook should, challenging the student-reader to think about complex historical situations while at the same time making that complexity manageable."--Robert S. Babcock, Hastings College
