Central European University Press, 2003 - History - 553 pages
Thirty-two eminent historians and social scientists cover the last two centuries of Russian history in this rich collection of essays. The range and high quality of the contributions reflect the broadening of social and cultural directions that has characterized 'new history; issues of the Russian borderland, especially Ukraine, the Caucasus and Central Asia, receive a prominent treatment as a key part of Russian and Soviet history. Too, studies in this volume show sensitivity to the multicultural nature of Russian society and culture. Top authority in Russian history, Alfred J. Rieber taught at leading US universities before joining Central European University.
