A Traveller's History of Russia (6th ed.)
Peter Neville

5" x 7 3/4" • 336 pages • b&w illus., maps
ISBN 9781566566452 • paperback • $14.95

This book provides a comprehensive survey of Russia's tragic and glorious history from prehistory through glasnost and the fall of the Soviet Union right up to the present day. The book begins with prehistoric Russia and its nomadic invaders, and covers the rise of Muscovy with its colorful panopoly of rulers from Ivan Moneybags to Ivan the Terrible, despotism of the Romanovs, and the Russian Revolution.

Then follows an account of the rise of the Soviet state, its world role and recent changes. The up-to-the-minute conclusion analyzes the Soviet collapse and its devolution into 15 separate republics, the tragedy of the Chechen War, and Vladimir Putin’s election.

Peter Neville is a Lecturer in Contemporary European History at the University of Luton and is also a tutor for the Open University. He is the author of several books on modern history including A Traveller's History of Ireland in this series. He is a frequent visitor to Eastern Europe and Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States. 


Media Reviews
'...the fascinating Traveller's History of Russia and the USSR. Since our schools teach nothing of Russian history, the book provides some valuable pre-holiday reading for anyone planning a trip to the Soviet Union' The Independent
