The Twentieth Century Russia Reader
By

Rating
The twentieth century was, for Russia, one of the most challenging in its history. the country experienced war, revolution and systemic collapse, all of which brought serious challenges especially in international affairs. Only by examining the whole century can Modern Russia be properly understood and key questions as to the impact of war, revolution, collapse, the Cold War ad Russia's post-Soviet development be addressed. The Twentieth Century Russia Reader is, thus, a key resource for students of Russian history across this turbulent period. It contains key articles on history and politics from across the period; from the last Tsar, the Russian Revolution, the Soviet Union and World War Two, right up to the post-Soviet period. The Reader covers a huge subject in an accessible and clear manner. Alistair Kocho-Williams includes a comprehensive introduction explaining trends in the historiography and giving rationale for the inclusion of material, as well as prefaces to each section and article with an explanation of the debates and how material relates to them. It is essential reading for all students of Russian history.
