The making of Eastern Europe by Philip Longworth( Book )

60 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and Serbian and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why has the collapse of Communism resulted in so much disappointment for the hopeful millions of Eastern Europe? In this original and provocative book Philip Longworth argues that their predicament is only partly due to the imposition of the Soviet system: rather, they are the heirs of misfortune which dates back centuries. In searching for the origins of Eastern Europe's backwardness and the reasons for its difficult adaptation to democracy, this sweeping history ranges from the present day to the time of Constantine the Great, from the Urals to the Mediterranean and the Baltic, and emphasises culture and society, as well as politics and economics. The resulting analysis provides the crucial, and until now much-needed, long-term background to the current problems facing Eastern Europe. This new perspective and the insight it brings will improve our understanding of this complex region and be of immense value to all students of European history

"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 )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 3 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
