Description:

This course examines the emergence of Russia from its early formation in the Eastern Slav lands c.800, through the development of Kievan Rus' society, the experience of the Mongol Conquest, the rise of Muscovy, the expansion of the Russian state as a European and Asian power, the development of institutions such as serfdom and autocracy, and the emergence of Russia as major great power in the 19th century. The course culminates in an examination of the economic, political, cultural and social crises that urbanization, industrialization and international tensions created. It also closely examines the role of war and revolution that ultimately brought an end to the Romanov autocracy in 1917.
