DESCRIPTION

This unit examines Russian history from the eighteenth century to the Second World War. Straddling the borderlands between Europe and Asia, Russia reveals in stark relief key issues in westernisation and modernisation, and the relationship between Europe and the Islamic societies to its South-East. Nineteenth-century Russia was one of the most intellectually and artistically creative moments in history, as a deeply traditional society experienced increasing social and economic change. The Russian Revolution of 1917 created a Soviet communist dictatorship that profoundly influenced world politics in the twentieth century. Nazi Germany was ultimately destroyed by Russia's victory in its 'Great Patriotic War', which laid the foundations for the long 'Cold War' between the USA and Soviet Union. This unit explores the political, social and intellectual history of Modern Russia.
