Russian History: The Big Picture
4 sessions, 6 hours
In many ways, Russia is unique in both geography and history. A study in contrasts, the story of Russia’s people is one of the great achievements set against unbearable tragedies. This “Big Picture” survey of Russia’s long history brings to light the patterns, trends, and key events that have brought us to the Russia of today and the world view of its people.
