The history of Russia is anticipated to be a commonly comprehensible and plainly structured outline of Russia´s history since 1283, after the rise of Moscow. Russia was at its best in the 13th century when Moscow became a center for cultural activities. The Russian Tsardom was now a huge empire which spread from the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in the west to the Pacific Ocean. Succeeding governments of the 19th century retorted to such stresses with an amalgamation of unenthusiastic reform and subjugation. Serfdom in Russia was obliterated in 1861 but its abolition was attained on terms which were not favorable to the rustics and aided in increasing radical pressures. The phase between the serfdom and the beginning of World War I in 1914, State Duma, the Stolypin reforms and the constitution of 1906 endeavored to open and slacken the Russian politics and economy but the tsars were reluctant to renounce autocratic rule or part with their supremacy. A mix of fiscal breakdown, dissatisfaction with the autocratic government and wearies of the war elicited the 1917 Russian Revolution and first brought an association of moderate socialists and liberals to power, however their unsuccessful policies led to the confiscation of their control by the Communist Bolsheviks in October 25. The crucial history of the Soviet Union is between the 1922 and 1991, effectually Russia was a state based on ideology that indelicately had the same history as it did before the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk. Socialism was however build differently over various eras in the Russian history, from the varied society and variegated economy and ethos of 1920s to tyranny and authoritative economy of Stalin to the 1980s era of stagnation. From its initial years in March 1918, the government in the Soviet Union was grounded on the one-party rule of the Communists (this is what Bolsheviks called themselves). By the mid-1980s, with the faintness of its fiscal and administrative edifices gettin... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cyrus Nilo.

Steinbeck and Capa´s account of their journey through Cold War Russia is a classic piece of reportage and travel writing. Just after the Iron Curtain fell on Eastern Europe, Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Steinbeck and acclaimed war photographer Robert Capa ventured into the Soviet Union to report for the New York Herald Tribune. This rare opportunity took the famous travelers not only to Moscow and Stalingrad - now Volgograd - but through the countryside of the Ukraine and the Caucasus. Hailed by the New York Times as ´´superb´´ when it first appeared in 1948, A Russian Journal is the distillation of their journey and remains a remarkable memoir and unique historical document. What they saw and movingly recorded in words and on film was what Steinbeck called ´´the great other side there... the private life of the Russian people.´´ Unlike other Western reporting about Russia at the time, A Russian Journal is free of ideological obsessions. Rather, Steinbeck and Capa recorded the grim realities of factory workers, government clerks, and peasants, as they emerged from the rubble of World War II - represented here in Capa´s stirring photographs alongside Steinbeck´s masterful prose. Through it all, we are given intimate glimpses of two artists at the height of their powers, answering their need to document human struggle. This edition features an introduction by Steinbeck scholar Susan Shillinglaw. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Poe.
