548pp The Soviet Union crumbles and Russia rises from the rubble, once again the great nation. A perfect scenario, but for one point: Russia was never a nation. This, says eminent historian Geoffrey Hosking, is at the heart of the Russians' dilemma today, as they grapple with the rudiments of nationhood. His book--about the Russia that never was--provides a 300-year history of empire building at the expense of national identity. 3 maps. review >>> An enjoyable introduction to Russian imperial history. His thesis that Russian empire-building obstructed Russian nation-building is one that I find quite convinving. 850g packed for post
