From the emergence of the first Slavic state to the election of new President Dmitry Medvedev, this is a concise and thoughtful guide to the complex and turbulent history of Russia and its people. Paying particular attention to the implications of a future without Putin at its helm, Abraham Ascher provides a skilful blend of detail and analysis for all the key points in Russian history, from the Bolshevik Revolution to the coup that ousted Gorbachev. Newly updated to cover Russia's growing economic stature as well as the mounting divergence between Russia and the US's foreign policy stance, this stimulating introduction will prove useful and enlightening for students, scholars, and travelers alike.
