Russia and the wider world in historical perspective : essays for Paul Dukes by Cathryn Brennan( Book )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 203 libraries worldwide
This collection of original essays by leading academics explores major issues in Russia's relations with the wider world since the seventeenth century. The main emphasis is not on Russian foreign policy per se, but on the different levels of interaction between Russia, its immediate neighbours, and the wider global community, including cultural, political and economic relations. The many themes explored throughout the volume, from a range of perspectives, include Russian perceptions of non-Russians, awareness of Russia in Europe, and the extent to which Russia has been (or could be) considered part of (or separate from) mainstream European and world history. Collectively the essays reveal striking similarities between past and present issues in Russia's relations with the wider world, and they further strengthen the conviction that an understanding of Russia's place in the world order can only be successfully achieved in the new century if we endeavour first to understand the manner in which it has evolved
Minutes to midnight : history and the Anthropocene era from 1763 by Paul Dukes( Book )
13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 185 libraries worldwide
"The Doomsday Clock was created in 1947 by a group of atomic scientists to symbolise the perils facing humanity from nuclear weapons. In 2007 it was set at five minutes before the final bell, including for the first time the threat of climate change as well as new developments in the life sciences and nanotechnology. This book aims at an analysis of the evolution of our present predicament throughout the Anthropocene Era beginning in 1763, making special reference to the history of the period, the study of the subject and major advances in the natural sciences. Adam Smith and Adam Ferguson set out the basis for a scientific approach to the pre-industrial stages of historical development in the Enlightenment of the late eighteenth century, when the American and French Revolutions created a vocabulary of modernity. Throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, as the industrial revolution unfolded in several stages, nationalism, imperialism and totalitarianism were among the phenomena impeding the update of the Enlightenment programme as well as the fulfilment of the aspirations of 1776 and 1789. Our present predicament demands a rigorous examination of its origins and an assertion of a scientific pandisciplinary approach involving history and other academic specialisations"--
A history of the Urals : Russia's crucible from early empire to the post-Soviet era by Paul Dukes( Book )
7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 163 libraries worldwide
The Urals are best known as the boundary between Europe and Asia. A History of the Urals demonstrates the region's importance in its own right, as a crucible of Russia's defence industry in particular. In the first English-language book to explore the subject fully, Paul Dukes examines the region's contribution to the power of the state in Tsarist, Soviet and post-Soviet times, offering a refreshing antidote to Moscow-centric interpretations of Russian history. The book contextualizes more recent periods with chapters on the earlier years of the Urals and covers the key environmental as well as economic, political and cultural themes. The book contains illustrations and maps, plus lists of books and websites, as aids to further research and understanding of the subject. A History of the Urals is an important book that provides new and valuable insights for all students of Russian history. -- from back cover
