    ABC-CLIO 2014; US$ 189.00

    Russian military history is an often-overlooked field.

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 50.95

    Walter Connor shows how the seven decades since Stalin launched the First Five Year plan have changed Soviet workers from a disorganized mass of unskilled ex-peasants into something very much like a class--not the working class intended by Lenin and Stalin but a new and powerful "accidental proletariat," produced by forces partly beyond the state's... more...

    Columbia University Press 2008; US$ 22.99

    In the 1650s and 1660s, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Nikon, carried out a series of reforms which were rejected by a large number of the faithful.

  • Assured Victory: How "Stalin the Great" Won the War, but Lost the Peaceby Albert Weeks

    ABC-CLIO 2011; US$ 49.00

    A detailed reexamination of historical facts indicates that Stalin could deserve to be regarded as a "great leader." Yet Stalin clearly failed as his nation's leader in a post-World War II milieu, where he delivered the Cold War instead of rapid progress and global cooperation. It is the proof of both Stalin's brilliance and blunders that makes him... more...

Years later,... more...

  • Between Dictatorship and Democracyby Michael McFaul; Nikolay Petrov; Andrei Ryabov

    Brookings Institution Press 2010; US$ 18.99

    For hundreds of years, dictators have ruled Russia. Do they still?

After the collapse of the... more...

    Indiana University Press 2013; US$ 20.99

    On Sunday, March 20, 1911, children playing in a cave near Kiev made a gruesome discovery: the blood-soaked body of a partially clad boy.
