Extending the Borders of Russian History
Essays in Honor of Alfred J. Rieber

Edited by Marsha Siefert, Central European University, Budapest.

Leading authority in Russian history, Alfred J. Rieber taught at leading US universities before joining Central European University.

Eminent historians and social scientists, Boris A. Anan'ich, Peter Gatrell, Wendy Zeva Goldman, Leopold H. Haimson, Moshe Lewin, Nicholas V. Riasanovsky, William G. Rosenberg, Richard S. Wortman, to name a few - cover several centuries of Russian and Soviet history in this rich collection of essays. The range and high quality of the contributions reflect the broadening of social and cultural directions that has characterized 'new history'; issues of the Russian borderland, especially Ukraine, the Caucasus and Central Asia, receive a prominent treatment as a key part of Russian and Soviet history. Too, studies in this volume show sensitivity to the multicultural nature of Russian society and culture.

"32 überwiegend amerikanische und russische Autoren, unter denen sich manche große Namen zur Erforschung der russischen Geschichte des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts finden, widmen sich in fünf chronologisch-tematischen Kapiteln Themen der russischen Geschichte... Dieser Sammelband insgesamt ist dem an der russischen Geschichte interessierten zu empfehlen." - Jahrbücher für Geschichte Osteuropas

The book consists of five parts:

Part 1: Narrating Russia; Part 2: Imperial Russia: A Multicultural Society and its Borderlands; Part 3: The Revolutionary Decade; Part 4: The Soviet Experience; Part 5: Persistent Factors in Russian History
