Synopsis: A Traveller's History of Russia gives a comprehensive survey of the country's past from the earliest times through the era of "perestroika" and the end of the Soviet Union right up to the present day. The reader first learns about prehistoric Russia and its nomadic invaders, then the rise of Muscovy with its colorful panoply of rulers from Ivan Moneybags to Ivan the Terrible; the despotism of the Romanovs and the Russian Revolution are discussed in depth.
Then follows an account of the rise of the Soviet state, its world role and recent changes. The up-to-the-minute conclusion analyzes the Soviet collapse and its devolution into 15 separate republics, the tragedy of the Chechen War, and Vladimir Putin's election.
This handy paperback is fully indexed with a chronology of major events and a gazetteer cross-referenced to the main text. Illustrated with line drawings and historical maps.
