A History of Russia covers the entire span of the country's history, from ancient times to the post-communist present. Keeping with the hallmark of the text, Riasanovsky and Steinberg examine all aspects of Russia's history-political, international, military, economic, social, andcultural-with a commitment to objectivity, fairness, and balance. New chapters on politics, society, and culture since 1991 explore Russia's complex experience after communism and discuss its chances of becoming a more stable and prosperous country in the future. Widely acclaimed as the best one-volume history available, A History of Russia is available in two split volumes-the first covers early Russia through the nineteenth century and the second ranges from 1855 to the present. Volume II features an additional introductory chapter that links Russia'smodern history to the events that preceded it.
Nicholas V. Riasanovsky is Sidney Hellman Ehrman Professor of European History at University of California at Berkeley. Mark D. Steinberg is Professor of History at the University of Illinois.
