Russia: A Reference Guide from the Renaissance to the Presentby Mauricio Borrero
From the Tatars to the KGB, Russia discusses the last several hundred years of Russian history from the Renaissance to the present. A comprehensive reference guide to the world's largest country, this volume covers influential individuals, significant places, important policies, and more. It provides readers with a greater understanding of Russian history and explores various events that have profoundly impacted the development of the country and its people. A narrative history, a chronology, and A-to-Z entries present information in a variety of useful formats that make the content accessible and interesting. Because of its size and recent imperial history, Russia is inhabited by diverse peoples, many with unique cultural identities. The participation of these non-Russian peoples in public life, willingly or unwillingly, and their places of origin have played an important role in the development of Russia. This book fairly reflects the multiethnic character of Russia and the Soviet Union since the 15th century. Special attention to popular culture and youth culture gives this reference added depth, making it an excellent resource for students and general readers of all ages.
