Across the Revolutionary Divide: Russia, 1861-1945 presents an ambitious interpretive account of Russian history from the abolition of serfdom by Alexander II to the end of World War II. By taking into account seven fundamental themes--politics, society, nations, modernization, beliefs, world, and culture - the author recounts the turbulent series of events, influences, reforms, and revolutions that transformed the vast country from a backward society into one of the world's two great "super-powers." With its unique thematic approach and careful balance of political, economic, and cultural issues, Across the Revolutionary Divide is a thought-provoking overview of one of the most fascinating periods of Russian history.
