Publisher Comments:

This book provides a comprehensive survey of Russia's tragic and glorious history from pre-history through glasnost and the fall of the Soviet Union right up to the present day. The book begins with prehistoric Russia and its nomadic invaders, and covers the rise of Muscovy with its colorful panopaly of rulers from Ivan Moneybags to Ivan the Terrible, despotism of the Romanovs, and the Russian Revolution.

The up-to-the-minute conclusion analyzes the Soviet collapse and its devolution into is separate republics, the tragedy of the Chechen War, and Vladimir Putin's election.
