Abstract:

"This four-volume set features nearly 1,500 entries by experts on all aspects of Russian history, including important biographical figures, geographical areas, ethnographic groups, cultural landmarks, military campaigns, and social issues."--"The Top 20 Reference Titles of the Year," American Libraries, May 2004.

Focusing on Russia's history from the time of the Tsars to the present (though a few articles go back earlier), this encyclopedia features 1,500 articles on people, politics, customs, languages, economies, wars, religions, art and literature, science, and geography of Russia and the former Soviet republics. Entries include biographies of famous writers such as Boris Pasternak and Alexander Pushkin, artists such as Vassily Kandinsky and Peter Carl Faberge, and politicians and rulers such as Vladimir Putin, Mikhail Gorbachev and Catherine the Great. Other topics include Russian relations with individual countries (e.g., Afghanistan, Denmark); economics and trade, including capitalism in Russia, foreign debt, and taxes; major battles and wars such as the Crimean War, the invasion of Czechoslovakia, the Battle of Leipzig, and World Wars I and II; and arts and science and technology. "This four-volume set features nearly 1,500 entries by experts on all aspects of Russian history, including important biographical figures, geographical areas, ethnographic groups, cultural landmarks, military campaigns, and social issues. Providing a comprehensive discussion of Russia's people, politics, economics, religion and social systems, the Encyclopedia of Russian History complements the study of comparative politics, world history, geography, literature, arts and culture and world cultures. With approximately 1,600 entries and 500 illustrations, this four-volume set spans the time from the earliest beginnings of the Russian nation to the rise and fall of the Soviet Union.
