book cover image Russia: a history

Writing and, sometimes, reading Russian history used to mean sifting through a mound of Kremlin "spin". Now, Russia : a history cuts through the myths. There have been startling revelations from classified archives that until recently were not even known to exist. In an updated version of a 1997 classic, a distinguished team of historians tells the nation's definitive story. From tenth-century Muscovy to the 'new order' of the 21st century, this is "essential reading for anyone with an interest in 'Mother Russia'" (Oxford University Press).
