Russia is now undergoing tremendous changes on several fronts, and its history is likewise ready to be reinterpreted. This collection of essays views Russia in a fresh historical perspective, enabling readers to consider the consequences of a past that still influences any and all attempts to fashion a different Russian future. The dominant theme of this book, then, is the balance of continuity and discontinuity to be found in the history of Russia as seen across several centuries. Thus the contributors to this new volume revisit the past, rethink the present, and reconsider the future of the this nation by connecting contemporary events and movements with broader trends in the ongoing Russian experience.
