IVAN THE TERRIBLE: A Ruthless Leader. The Entire Life Story. Biography, Facts & Quotes (Great Biographies Book 13)

by The History Hour

Ivan the TerribleRuthless LeaderDownload for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free Bonus Inside!Read on your Computer, Mac, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.Has Ivan Chetvyorty been a wicked and ruthless leader? Has his nation suffered as he pursued his own corrupted agendas? Surely, though, none comes close to the violent, lascivious, vengeful reign of Ivan Chetvyorty Vasilyevich, born to the Rurik Dynasty in the Grand Duchy of Muscovy. Indeed, this man’s period in power was one of the longest in Russian history, lasting more than half a century. If the early years of his rule saw him as just a child, powerless to stop the corruption of his supposed mentors, he more than made up for it when coming of age. And Russia suffered as a result.Inside you’ll read aboutBirth of a TyrantA M...

Ivan the Terrible: A Captivating Guide to the First Tsar of Russia and His Impact on Russian History

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating life of Ivan the Terrible, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!Considering that he has gone down in history as Ivan the Terrible, the first tsar of Russia could hardly have been a Boy Scout. As his name suggests, Ivan had an utterly terrifying presence during his thirty-seven-year-long reign.Ivan's story is not only one of brutality, but it is also a tale of great suffering. It's the story of a little boy whose father died when he was just a toddler; a story of a child whose mother was poisoned when he was only seven years old. This was a boy who had to struggle to survive as the warring nobility threatened, molested, and harassed him endlessly while he tried to protect his only friend—his deaf and mute little brother. This is also the ta...

The Electrification of Russia, 1880–1926

by Jonathan Coopersmith

≤p≥he Electrification of Russia, 1880–1926 is the first full account of the widespread adoption of electricity in Russia, from the beginning in the 1880s to its early years as a state technology under Soviet rule. Jonathan Coopersmith has mined the archives for both the tsarist and the Soviet periods to examine a crucial element in the modernization of Russia. Coopersmith shows how the Communist Party forged an alliance with engineers to harness the socially transformative power of this science-based enterprise. A centralized plan of electrification triumphed, to the benefit of the Communist Party and the detriment of local governments and the electrical engineers. Coopersmith's narrative of how this came to be elucidates the deep-seated and chronic conflict between the utopianism of...

A Time to Live (Russian Cross Book 6)

by Alexander Lapin

A Time to Live – this is the title of the final, sixth book of the novel Russian cross. The original novel was conceived as a five-volume edition, and with characters I planned to leave at the turn of the century. But too much remained uncertain in the fate of each character and the internal logic of the narration required to bring the line of characters’ lives before the moment of awareness of each of them of its purpose.No, they do not achieve complete peace and well-being. Life continues to bring them new difficulties that require overcoming, but each of the main characters of the novel in the final comes to understand the need to be here and now, in this place, to do this business, with these people, to love exactly this person and raise common children.And then, despite the diffic...

Research Guide to the Russian and Soviet Censuses (Studies in Soviet History and Society)

by Ralph S. Clem

Taken together, the Russian census of 1897 and the Soviet censuses of 1926, 1959, 1970, and 1979 constitute the largest collection of empirical data available on that country, but until the publication of this book in 1986, the daunting complexity of that material prevented Western scholars from exploiting the censuses fully. This book is both a guide and a detailed index to these censuses. The first part of the book consists of eight essays by specialist on the USSR, six of them dealing with the use of census materials and the availability of data for research on ethnicity and language, marriage and the family, education and literacy, migration and organization, age structure, and occupations. The second part, a comprehensive index for all the published censuses, presents more than six hu...

Proletarian Peasants: The Revolution of 1905 in Russia's Southwest

by Robert Edelman

In this book, conceived and written for the general reader as well as the specialist, Robert Edelman uses a case study of peasant behavior during a particular revolutionary situation to make an important contribution to one of the major debates in contemporary peasant studies. Edelman's subject is the peasantry of the right-bank Ukraine, and he uses local and regional archives seldom available to Western scholars to give a detailed picture of the ways in which the inhabitants of one of Russia’s most advanced agrarian regions expressed their discontent during the years 1905–1907. By the 1890s, the landlords of Russia’s Southwest had organized a highly successful capitalist form of agriculture, and Edelman demonstrates that their peasants responded to these dramatic economic changes by...

Revolution of the Mind: Higher Learning among the Bolsheviks, 1918–1929 (Studies of the Harriman Institute)

by Michael David-Fox

Using archival materials never previously accessible to Western scholars, Michael David-Fox analyzes Bolshevik Party educational and research initiatives in higher learning after 1917. His fresh consideration of the era of the New Economic Policy and cultural politics after the Revolution explains how new communist institutions rose to parallel and rival conventional higher learning from the Academy of Sciences to the universities. Beginning with the creation of the first party school by intellectuals on the island of Capri in 1909, David-Fox argues, the Bolshevik cultural project was tightly linked to party educational institutions. He provides the first account of the early history and politics of three major institutions founded after the Revolution: Sverdlov Communist University, where...

Stalin’s Constitution (Open Access): Soviet Participatory Politics and the Discussion of the 1936 Draft Constitution (Routledge Studies in Modern European History)

by Samantha Lomb

Upon its adoption in December 1936, Soviet leaders hailed the new so-called Stalin Constitution as the most democratic in the world. Scholars have long scoffed at this claim, noting that the mass repression of 1937–1938 that followed rendered it a hollow document. This study does not address these competing claims, but rather focuses on the six-month long popular discussion of the draft Constitution, which preceded its formal adoption in December 1936. Drawing on rich archival sources, this book uses the discussion of the draft 1936 Constitution to examine discourse between the central state leadership and citizens about the new Soviet social contract, which delineated the roles the state and citizens should play in developing socialism. For the central leadership, mobilizing its citizen...

Rewolucja: Russian Poland, 1904–1907

by Robert E. Blobaum

The revolution of 1905 in the Russian-ruled Kingdom of Poland marked the consolidation of major new influences on the political scene. As he examines the emergence of a mass political culture in Poland, Robert E. Blobaum offers the first history in any Western language of this watershed period. Drawing on extensive archival research to explore the history of Poland's revolutionary upheavals, Blobaum departs from traditional interpretations of these events as peripheral to an essentially Russian movement that reached a climax in the Russian Revolution of 1917. He demonstrates that, although Polish independence was not formally recognized until after World War I, the social and political conditions necessary for nationhood were established in the years around 1905....

Russian Formalism: A Metapoetics

by Peter Steiner

Russian Formalism, one of the twentieth century's most important movements in literary criticism, has received far less attention than most of its rivals. Examining Formalism in light of more recent developments in literary theory, Peter Steiner here offers the most comprehensive critique of Formalism to date. Steiner studies the work of the Formalists in terms of the major tropes that characterized their thought. He first considers those theorists who viewed a literary work as a mechanism, an organism, or a system. He then turns to those who sought to reduce literature to its most basic element—language—and who consequently replaced poetics with linguistics. Throughout, Steiner elucidates the basic principles of the Formalists and explores their contributions to the study of poetics, ...

How did he achieve such a rapid change in fortunes? Was it through palace intrigue or magic and mind control? Or perhaps, the causes were a combination of hypnosis and haemophilia? The tsar’s son Nicholas had been born with the dreaded “royal disease” otherwise known as the blood clotting deficiency named haemophilia. The slightest cut or scrape could be life-threatening for the young boy. The self-proclaimed healer managed to convince the royal family that he was the only way that their son woul...

The End of the Third Reich: A New English Translation

by Vasily Chuikov

Vasily Chuikov was there at the end, every soldier’s desire. This account of the operations of his army on the Eastern Front from the summer of 1944 until the surrender of Germany is not as dramatic as his history of Stalingrad. As Chuikov himself said, Stalingrad was ‘idiosyncratic.’ No one had ever seen the like and, with a bit of luck, no one will ever see the like again.This book relates many stories, but also contains a fair amount of military science. If the small-town geography of Poland and Ukraine becomes too tedious, skim it.This book can educate those who do not fully appreciate the sacrifice made by Red Army troops in World War II. Russians of the Soviet period almost always failed in their appeals for understanding by painting themselves as universally courageous, kind, ...

The Soviet Union, which had climbed to power from the shambles of the 1917 Revolution that saw communism overthrow the czar, and Germany, which had risen from the ashes of World War I’s Treaty of Versailles, certainly had a complicated history. Stalingrad was a battle between the Allies and the Axis Powers; it was a struggle between the Soviet Union and Germany for vic...
