Product Description


`Review from previous edition A first-rate book - up-to-date, lively in style, powerful in interpretation' Norman Stone

`John Westwood's survey of Russian history in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries is probably the finest single volume of its type. Its approach is balanced and informed ... elegant, lovely, and eminently readable. As an introduction to the subject, it cannot be recommended too highly.' Journal of European Studies

`In this new fourth edition J.N. Westwood has brought up to date his outstanding introduction to Russian and Soviet history. As a survey of modern Russian history it has many merits, always striving to be objective, realistic without being cynical yet also lively, with many apt extracts from contemporary sources.' Anthony Hyman, Central Asian Survey (1994); 13(2); 22/11/1994

`NOT TO BE USED EXTERNALLY This history of Russia should become the standard work on the period it covers, and no student of the period can afford to be without access to it ... It is well written, balanced and sensible in all its judgements, and beautifully presented ... A fascinating and thought-provoking book.' Assistant Masters Association

`a riveting narrative history of Russia from 1812 onwards and I unhesitatingly recommend it as a work worth studying by any teacher preparing for the Revised Higher Russia Great Power topic. Here is a writer who shoots from the hip and the book is full of expressions that show the author's bold judgement on the person or event...I thought this was a terrific book...get a copy for the school library and read it yourself so that you can give your students some edited'll never run short of them and you can guarantee that you'll be telling them something perceptive, dryly humorous or off-beat that will probably leave a lasting memory.' Resources Review (05/01/1996)
