The making of Eastern Europe by Philip Longworth( Book )

"Why has the collapse of Communism resulted in so much disappointment for the hopeful millions of Eastern Europe? In the revised edition of this controversial and provocative book Philip Longworth argues that their predicament is only partly due to the imposition of the Soviet system but rather that they are the heirs of misfortune which dates back centuries." "In exploring the origins of current problems, this sweeping history ranges from the present day to the time of Constantine the Great, the Urals to the Mediterranean and the Baltic, and emphasizes culture and society, as well as politics and economics. In an additional new chapter Philip Longworth analyses the collapse of Communism and the advent of postcommunism. This book will be of immense value to all who want to understand Eastern Europe's past and present."--Jacket

"Philip Longworth explores the dynamics of Russia's past through time and space, from the nameless adventurers who first penetrated this vast inhospitable terrain to a cast of dynamic characters that includes Ivan the Terrible, Catherine the Great and Stalin. His narrative takes in the magnificent, historic ellies of Kiev, Moscow and St. Petersburg, it stretches to Alaska in the east to the Black Sea and the Ottoman Empire to the south, to the Baltic, in the west and to Archangel and the Arctic Ocean to the north." "From Kievan Rus' - the first ever Russian state, which collapsed with the invasion of the Mongols in the thirteenth century - to ruthless Moscow, the Russian Empire of the eighteenth century and finally the Soviet period, this groundbreaking study analyses the growth and dissolution of each vast empire as it gives way to the next."--Jacket

The Soviet image : a hundred years of photographs from inside the TASS archives by Peter Radetsky( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Soviet Image provides a window into the life of a people - from the Revolution in the early years of the twentieth century through decades of Soviet rule, two world wars, the cold war era, the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the emergence of a new Russia. The 300 photographs in this book, culled from the vast archive of the Russian news agency TASS, have in many cases defined Russian history, and in some cases are its only visual record (without a Kremlin permit, photographing national events was long forbidden). Together they represent both the image that the Soviet Union wished to present to the world and the way that Russians saw, and see, themselves."--Jacket
