Kievan Russia was originally published in a clothbound edition in 1948 as volume two in George Vernadsky's comprehensive series, A History of Russia. It is now available for the first time in a paperbound edition. At the time of its publication

George Vernadsky is professor emeritus of Russian history at Yale University and the author of numerous books on Russian history.
