Riasanovsky's "History of Russia" has defined the market and set a standard for accurate, balanced interpretation, and attention to political, social, and cultural history and international relations. Featuring a new co-author, Mark Steinberg, this seventh edition includes more information on the politics and economics of post-Socialism and on post-Soviet society and culture. For the first time, the text is being offered in paperback and as a combined two-volume set covering early Russia through the nineteenth-century in volume one, and from 1855 to the present in volume two.show more

Review quote

"Nicholas Riasanovsky and Mark Steinberg's new two-volume A History of Russia is a masterpiece, as comprehensive and scholarly as its previous editions but now updated to include chapters on contemporary-or at least late 20th century-Russian politics, society, culture, and the arts. There can be few single texts that deal more carefully with so great a range of historical eras, and few that do so while covering so broad a spectrum."-Catherine Merridale, University of London for the London Times Book Review, February 24, 2006show more
