Description
A land of superlatives, Russia is by far the world's largest country, spanning 11 time zones across the whole of northern Asia and the eastern third of Europe. Since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1989, Russia has undergone a radical change from a communist enclave to an ultra capitalist economy of vast wealth and resources. This book offers a panoramic view of Russia and its people since 1917, describing everyday life and a rich culture, including portraits of great writers, artists, and thinkers who have shaped the country. In her wide-ranging introduction, Mary Dejevsky looks at the recent past and the possible future for Russia as it regains its status in the new world order.
