Between East and WestThe Origins of Modern Russia: 862-1953

Author(s): R. D. Charques

History | No Category | October 2020 | December 2020

A classic work now back in print for the first time since 1956—and still regarded as one of the groundbreaking books on the subject—this narrative history of Russia was the first to encompass the myth-befogged beginnings of the nation-state, the rise and cataclysmic fall of tsarism, and the Spartan years of the U.S.S.R.

Charques emphasizes three points of view: that autocracy has played a dominant role throughout all of Russian history;that serfdom is the fabric of Russia's social history; and that it is of paramount importance to recognize Russia's present regime under Putin and Medvedev as the latest phase in along history of oppression.
