This collection presents radically new views on key aspects of Russian/Soviet history: the non-Slavic sources of Russian statehood, tsarist penal systems, the pre-evolutionary technological level, the famine of 1931-3, patronage practices in Stalin's Russia, the incidence and mechanism of Stalinist repression, the dissident roots of glasnost, Russian patriotic histories of War in the Caucasus, and the fall of the Soviet Union.
