Description

Making extensive use of contemporary accounts, Moynahan traces Russia's turbulent 20th century, from the last days of tsarist rule to the Bolshevik Revolution, two world wars (and one cold one), and to the overthrow of the Communist regime. Simultaneously a political, social and oral history, this book will quickly become the preeminent short history of Russia's recent past. Photos.

"The Russian Century manages to convey both the staggering cruelties of Russian history and the telling gestures of individual suffering.... Moynahan knows how to focus on revealing details in the bigger picture."--Newsweek
