Now completely revised in this seventh edition, A History of Russia covers the entire span of the country's history, from ancient times to the postcommunist present. Featuring a new coauthor, Mark Steinberg, this edition offers extensively updated material based on the most current research, including documents from recently opened archives. Keeping with the hallmark of the text, Riasanovsky and Steinberg examine all aspects of Russia's history--political, international, military, economic, social, and cultural--with a commitment to objectivity, fairness, and balance. This seventh edition contains a wealth of new images and a fully revised bibliography and reading list. Two new chapters on politics, society, and culture since 1991 explore Russia's complex experience after communism and discuss its chances of becoming a more stable and prosperous country in the future.
Widely acclaimed as the best one-volume history available, A History of Russia is being offered in paperback for the first time. In addition to the one-volume version, it is now also available in two separate volumes--Volume I covers early Russia through the nineteenth century and Volume II ranges from 1855 to the present. Volume II also features an additional introductory chapter that links Russia's modern history to the events that preceded it.

Nicholas V. Riasanovsky is at University of California, Berkeley. Mark Steinberg is at University of Illinois.Review:
"Nicholas Riasanovsky and Mark Steinberg's new two-volume A History of Russia is a masterpiece, as comprehensive and scholarly as its previous editions but now updated to include chapters on contemporary-or at least late 20th century-Russian politics, society, culture, and the arts. There can be few single texts that deal more carefully with so great a range of historical eras, and few that do so while covering so broad a spectrum."-Catherine Merridale, University of London for the London Times Book Review, February 24, 2006
