In the second edition of this text, Kees Boterbloem has expanded his coverage of modern Russian history while maintaining the narrative of this country’s fascinating history. The new volume brings the story up to the present while expanding on issues concerning Russia’s non-Russian populations. This work is ideal for a survey of Russian history and for a general audience. Outstanding!
