Roger Bartlett traces the history of Russia from its beginnings in Kiev Russia, through the Muscovite and Imperial, Soviet and post-Soviet periods, to the end of the twentieth-century. While offering a broad perspective on Russia's historical development, Bartlett focuses on the origins of Russian political culture and the place of the majority peasant population in the Russian/Soviet polity.
