The alphabetically arranged entries lead readers to subjects as diverse as art, law, philosophy, and religion. The text defines various terms; explores the lives of influential artists, politicians, propagandists, writers, and royal figures; and provides vital information on Russia's past and current geographical boundaries. Features of the book include more than 2,500 encyclopedia entries that are cross-referenced and, where appropriate, include suggestions for further reading; a quick-reference chronology that tracks the important events in Russian history up to the time the volume went to press; a map reference section that features major cities, states, principalities, and historically significant neighboring dominions. Encyclopedia of Russian History goes beyond the exploration of well-publicized incidents in Russian history to examine little-known but significant events integral to the course of the country's development.

It names the Heads of State for the period concerned and gives information on each country's parliament, ministers, elections and parties. Justice is covered, as are defence and treaties. Dependencies of the leading European countries are listed and the present status of these dependencies or former dependencies is given. Wherever possible, data have been recorded for all European countries, from the Atlantic to the Urals.
