Hailed by the Los Angeles Times as "a brisk, exciting tour of Russia's long journey from its Kievan origins," Russia: A History cuts through the myths and mystery that have surrounded this nation from its earliest days, with startling revelations from classified archives that until recently were not even known to exist. A distinguished team of historians has stripped away the propaganda of the past to tell the definitive story of Russia, from tenth-century Kiev and Muscovy through empire and revolution to the fall of Communism and the "new order" of the early 21st century. What emerges is a nation of extremes--of imperial opulence and abject poverty, tyrannical power and subversive resistance, artistic achievement and economic crisis, glittering cities and frozen steppes. A compelling story in its own right, it is essential reading for anyone with an interest in Russia and its place in the world. This new edition has been thoroughly updated to take into account developments under Vladimir Putin.

Review:

Review from previous edition: "A brisk, exciting tour of Russia's long journey from its Kievan origins to the early Yeltsin years ... stunningly beautiful illustrations and transparent prose"

--Los Angeles Times

"brings together the latest research into all aspects of Russian history and ... lends itself to reading by the general public as well as the undergraduate."

--Contemporary Review

"a lavishly illustrated volume, with a heavy-weight text"

--Edward Acton, The European
