Russia is the world's largest country - it is nearly twice the size of both China and the United States, and it stretches over 11 time zones. Much of Russia consists of vast plains, and the nation has an abundance of natural resources, including vast deposits of oil, iron ore, gold, and timber. This updated edition of ""Russia"" is enhanced by vital new information that will expertly guide students through the history, geography, culture, and economy of this immense - and immensely intriguing - country.
