Course Description

The purpose of this graduate reading course is to introduce students to the literature and historiographic debates in Russian history from the end of the imperial regime to the beginning of the Stalinist era. The readings, a mix of older and newer works, will focus on both the "high" politics of the period and the social and political pressure from below.
