From the Tatars to the KGB, Russia discusses the last several hundred years of history of this important country, from the Renaissance to the present. A comprehensive reference guide to the history of the world's largest country, this book covers influential individuals, significant places, important policies, and more. It provides readers with a greater understanding of Russian history and explores various moments that have profoundly impacted the historical development of the country and its people. This volume utilizes a narrative history, a chronology, and A-to-Z entries to present information in a variety of useful formats that make the content accessible and interesting.

Because of its size and recent imperial history, Russia is inhabited by diverse peoples, many with unique cultural identities. The participation of these non-Russian peoples in public life, willingly or unwillingly, and their places of origin have played an important role in the development of Russia. This book fairly reflects the multiethnic character of Russia and the Soviet Union since the 15th century. Special attention to popular culture and youth culture gives this reference added depth, making it an excellent resource for students and general readers of all ages.
