Empire : the Russian Empire and its rivals by D. C. B Lieven( Book )

37 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and Japanese and held by 1,218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How does one empire differ from another? Why do empires rise and fall? What has made empires flourish in some eras and regions of the world but not in others? In this book, Dominic Lieven explores the place and meaning of empire from ancient Rome to the present." "The central focus of the book is Russia and the rise and fall of the Tsarist and the Soviet Empires. The overwhelming majority of works on empire concentrate on the European maritime powers. Lieven's comparative approach highlights the important role played by Russia in the expansion of Europe and its rise to global dominance. The book contrasts the nature, strategies, and fate of empire in Russia with that of its major rivals, the Habsburg, Ottoman, and British empires, and considers a broad range of other cases from ancient China and Rome to the present-day United States, Indonesia, India, and the European Union."--Jacket
Russia against Napoleon : the true story of the campaigns of War and peace by D. C. B Lieven( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his major new history of the Russian conflict immortalized by Tolstoy in "War and Peace," Lieven provides an examination of the period from the Russian perspective, demonstrating that Napoleon's defeat in 1812 by the Russian army was just the beginning of what would be the longest military campaign in European history
The end of tsarist Russia : the march to World War I and revolution by D. C. B Lieven( Book )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and French and held by 1,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'As much as anything, the First World War turned on the fate of Ukraine ... ' The decision to go to war in 1914 had catastrophic consequences for Russia. The result was revolution, civil war and famine in 1917-20, followed by decades of Communist rule. Dominic Lieven's powerful and original new book, based on exhaustive and unprecedented study in Russian and many other foreign archives, explains why this suicidal decision was made and explores the world of the men who made it, thereby consigning their entire class to death or exile and making their country the victim of a uniquely terrible political experiment under Lenin and Stalin. Epic in detail and scope, and unique in its perspective, THE END OF TSARIST RUSSIA is a gripping study of why the Russian Revolution happened and why it had such fateful consequences for both Russia and Europe. THE END OF TSARIST RUSSIA is about far more than Russia. By looking at the origins and results of the First World War from a mostly Russian angle, it offers a radically different view of why Europe descended into disaster. Dominic Lieven's interpretation of Europe's great war and Russia's revolution will overturn assumptions about events that still have major implications for world history down to the present day"--Front flap

Nicholas II : twilight of the Empire by D. C. B Lieven( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is there new to say about Russia's last monarch? Almost everything. Previous biographies have told of the shy family man, the father of the hemophiliac heir, the victim of the infamous murder at Ekaterinburg in 1918. This book provides new insights into those parts of the story, but it looks above all at Nicholas as political leader and emperor, as it portrays the Old Regime's collapse and the origins of Bolshevik Russia in a way that will surprise readers
Restless Empire : a historical atlas of Russia by Ian Barnes( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the first Slavic migrations to the Romanovs' rise to the Putin era, Russia has endured for centuries as a nation whose sheer size and diversity have challenged its rulers and shaped its identity. Restless Empire illuminates the sweep of Russian history in a full-color atlas depicting the essential cultural, political, economic, and military developments of Russia's past. Like the double-headed eagle that is its state emblem, Russia has always looked abroad to both the East and the West, searching for secure trade routes, trustworthy allies, and defensible frontiers. Expansion beyond Muscovy's forested confines began in the fifteenth century, when Ivan III rejected Mongol rule and moved into the Russian steppe. The waterways linking the Baltic to the Black and Caspian seas were critical to Russia's development from the Middle Ages onward. The age-old quest to acquire warm-water ports culminated in the construction of St. Petersburg in the eighteenth century, when imperial Russia began to rival Europe's Great Powers. From Ivan the Terrible to Catherine the Great, Lenin and Stalin to Yeltsin and Putin, Russia's rulers have carved their nation's destiny into world history, sometimes bending Russia toward despotism or democracy, internationalism or brusque independence. Russia's titanic conflicts -- against the Tatars and Turks, Napoleon, Nazi Germany, and the United States -- and its political upheavals from the Time of Troubles to the Soviet Union's downfall, as well as ongoing strife in Chechnya and Crimea, are presented chronologically in accessible text accompanied by detailed maps and illustrations

The distinct voices of individual contributors provide a multitude of perspectives on Russia's diverse and controversial millennial history
Towards the flame : empire, war and the end of Tsarist Russia by D. C. B Lieven( Book )

18 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Russian and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Russland gegen Napoleon : die Schlacht um Europa by D. C. B Lieven( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eine grundlegend neue Bewertung der Napoleon-Zeit auf der Basis erstmals ausgewerteter russischer Quellen Der Sieg Russlands über Napoleon markiert ein epochales Ereignis der europäischen Geschichte. Nach der Zerschlagung der vertriebenen Grande Armée 1812 wurde Napoleons Heer 1813 ein weiteres Mal auf deutschen Schlachtfeldern besiegt, bevor russische Truppen an der Spitze der siegreichen Koalition am 31. März 1814 in Paris einmarschierten. Damit begründete das Zarenreich im bis dahin längsten Feldzug der europäischen Geschichte Stabilität und Frieden im damaligen Europa. Dominic Lieven bezieht erstmals umfassend die russische Ereignisperspektive ein und revidiert zentrale Positionen bisheriger Geschichtsschreibung, die sich vornehmlich auf westliche Quellen stützt. Dabei werden drei kriegsentscheidende Stärken Russlands sichtbar: die logistische Meisterleistung, eine halbe Million Truppen ausserhalb des eigenen Staatsgebiets zu versorgen, die Überlegenheit der russischen Kavallerie und die oft verkannte Weitsicht von Zar Alexander I

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These four short films show essential news and propaganda functions of the movies during the Great War of 1914-1918. In those days before television and radio, fiction films in movie theaters were the most widely shared public experience while news films presented the most detailed and potent images of military life and front line action. Some news films were faked but some was authentic, obtained at great risk by daredevil combat cameramen. The fourth film is a 1975 compilation of early footage
