Consisting of twenty essays written by experts in each area, the book showcases current thinking on Russian cultural, political, economic, and social history from the sixteenth century to the demise of the Soviet "experiment." Informed by both archival work and published sources, this text introduces students to Russian history in an accessible and provocative format, and its eclectic essays offer readers an incomparable taste of the complexity and richness of Russia.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The essays are uniformly good; some are excellent. Recommended. * CHOICE *
Ranging over the last four centuries of Russian history, this collection of essays by both established and young scholars offers fresh perspectives. Some chapters offer new insights into mainstream issues, while others examine topics heretofore bypassed. Written for a broad audience, these essays contain gems for established scholars as well as nuggets for readers new to Russian history. They provide answers to some lingering questions even as they stimulate the reader's curiosity to ask more. This volume is a good example of 'post-hole' history. -- George E. Munro, Virginia Commonwealth University
An intriguing and diverse collection of essays on Russian and Soviet history. -- Thomas Lahusen, University of Toronto
