9780810832985: Reinterpreting Russia

Despite the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia remains one of the most important players, at least potentially so, in world politics. It shares its 12,500-mile border with somer strategically important countries; it has made tremendous contributions to science, space exploration, music, and literature; it possesses the capacity, in the form of thermonuclear weapons, to destroy the world. This bibliography attempts to advance the understanding of Russia by listing, categorizing, and describing some 600 recent books concerning Russia, the Soviet Union, and the post-Soviet Russian Federation. All books included were published between 1991 and 1996 (inclusive), and concern some aspect of Russian or Soviet politics, government, history, or society.

The book is divided into five parts. The first part lists reference works and books treating Russian history in its entirety. The other four parts of this bibliography group books by the incarnation of Russia they discuss: medieval Russia, Imperial Russia (beginning about 1700), the Soviet Union, and the Russian Federation. Within each part, books are grouped into chapters on the basis of their primary focus: politics and government, economics and industry, society and culture, and foreign policy and military affairs. Annotations provide the focus of each book, the author's primary argument, sources used, bibliographic information, contents, special features, and any cross-references to other categories that the book considers. Contains an overview of recent scholarship and a chronology of events since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.

About the Author:

Steve D. Boilard is Assistant Professor in the Department of Government at Western Kentucky University.

From Library Journal:

Boilard (government, Western Kentucky Univ.) lists approximately 600 books recently published in English (1991-96) on all periods of Russian history. Included are the current or paperback editions of classic texts plus new translations of travelers' accounts of Russia originally written earlier. Titles are listed by era (medieval Russia, imperial Russia, the Soviet Union, and post-Soviet Russia) and cover politics, history, and society. Literature and the arts are omitted. Comments (100-150 words per title) are primarily descriptive, not evaluative. More attention is paid to describing nontextual features of the works (i.e., illustrations, tables, and charts) than to evaluating content, and the author's statement that he included works if they were "respected, popular, interesting or unique" raises more questions than it answers. Though no other recent bibliography covers this topic, the utility of this title is undermined by weaknesses in selection. An optional purchase for libraries serving nonspecialists.?Marcia L.
