|Russia: A Concise History|
A Concise History
" The most recent tremendous changes in Russia have only enhanced the special fascination which this powerful, enigmatic country has so long held for the world at large. Russia's history, from her beginnings as an illiterate pagan Slav community centered on Kiev to her twentieth-century superpower status, has its own unique rhythm. Appalling calamities have shaped Russia: the Tatar Yoke; the Time of Troubles; the Napoleonic invasion; two world wars separated by a great civil war; a multitude of famines and epidemics. Not least among these scourges have been leaders such as Ivan the Terrible and Joseph Stalin. A succession of governments - Muscovite, Imperial and Soviet - have, with the help of powerful political police organizations, dragooned a common people fatalistic, courageous, resilient and patient in suffering, yet liable to sudden explosions of collective rage.
