Overview

When first published, Charles Ziegler's The History of Russia was acclaimed as a source of information not easily found elsewhere. Now there is more of the story to tell. In recent years, Russia has seen the rise of Vladimir Putin, the Orthodox Church's confirmation, of sainthood for Czar Nicholas II, deadly hostage crises with Chechen rebels, and all-out war with Georgia. These and other events, plus the opening of die Soviet archives, make this an opportune time to revisit the story of this massive and complex nation.

The History of Russia: Second Edition moves from the 10th-century founding of Kievan Rus to the czars to the Communist Era to the present. Ziegler pays particular attention to the fall of the Soviet Union and the leadership of Mikhail Gorbachev, Boris Yeltsin, and Vladimir Putin. In addition to a new chapter on the tumultuous last decade, this edition features an updated introduction and an expanded chapter on the Yeltsin Era.
