Description
Moving from Russia's agrarian beginnings in the first millennium to subsequent periods of monarchy, totalitarianism, and perestroika, all the way up to Vladimir Putin and his use of myths of Russian history to bolster his regime, historian Orlando Figes examines the ideas that have guided the country's actions: the need for autocracy to rule Russia's vast land; the veneration of the "Holy Tsar" and the cult of the leader; the belief in an essentially Russian collectivist spirit; and the oscillation between Russia's European and Eurasian character.
