Riddle, shrouded in mystery, inside an enigma. Churchill's description of Russia has remained historic. At the crossroads of Europe and Asia, Russia is "the other" for everyone. And yet they are one of the most powerful peoples on earth and a leading player on the international stage (which is painfully demonstrated once again nowadays). In A Short History of Russia, leading historian Mark Galeotti tells us the 12 centuries of its turbulent history: deadly battles, triumphs, tragedies, national dreams, questions and dilemmas. The history of Russia often resembles a palimpsest, as narratives were written on top of each other depending on the political and cultural situation. Galeotti lifts the curtain of myth and takes us to the heart of Russian history: the formation of a nation and the personalities of history, Ivan the Terrible and Catherine the Great, the rise and fall of the Romanovs, the Russian Revolution, the Cold War period, Chernobyl and the end of the Soviet Union. And from the rise and victory of Vladimir Putin to the current regime and events leading up to the war against Ukraine. "An excellent book, a real achievement to be able to cover an extremely long period of time in a concise and easy-to-understand book. " Peter Frankopan "An enlightening, penetrating, adventurous journey through 1,000 years of turbulent history". Spectator "Fascinating. . . Galeotti is one of the most astute political analysts of Putin and modern Russia. " Financial Times "Excellent introduction to the history of a nation whose lack of clear borders pushed it into a systematic process of expansionism, throwing new national, cultural and religious identities into the human melting pot. " Kirkus
