Overview

This book is a concise and comprehensive narrative history of Russia from 980 to 1584. Presenting developments in social and economic areas, as well as in political history, foreign relations, religion and culture, Janet Martin breaks away from the traditional view of Old Russia as a static, immutable culture, and emphasizes the "dynamic" and changing qualities of Russian society. She develops lines of argument that lead to clear conclusions concerning how and why the states and society of the lands of the Rus' assumed the forms and characteristics that they did.
