William Fuller, a recognized expert on Russian military history, selected the notorious case of Colonel S. Myasoyedov and General V. Sukhomlinov as the topic of his new book. Involving the investigative materials not yet used by historians, the author combines the biographical narrative full of living details with the analysis of police, intelligence and judicial practices and offers a perceptive reconstruction of the spy mania of the military and political elites of late imperial Russia. The central questions around which the book is built up: how and why was it possible to incriminate officers, albeit morally impaired and unclean in hand, but never inclined to treason and not destined, the worst crime in wartime and convince a large number of people of their guilt?

A new book by the famous philologist and historian, professor of the University of Cambridge, Alexander Etkind, tells how the Russian Empire took possession of foreign territories and developed its own lands, colonizing many peoples, including the Russians themselves. Etkind elaborates on the limits of the application of the Western notions of colonialism and orientalism to Russian culture, the formation of the language of self-colonization among Russian historians, the serfdom and the peasant community as colonial institutions, and attempts at literature to solve in their own way the problems of internal colonization posed by Russian history. Moving from history to literature and back, Etkind gives unexpected interpretations of critical texts about the imperial experience, whose authors were Defoe and Tolstoy, Gogol and Conrad, Kant and Bakhtin

History
Российская империя - одна из самых обширных и долговечных в истории. Она единственная после своей гибели в 1917 г. Сумела воссоздать себя под иным названием, вернув себе все прежние завоевания. После вторичного краха в 1992 г. ее наследницей стала Россия, во многом напоминающая все ту же империю, какой она родилась в 1552 г. Сегодняшняя Россия точно так же простирается на два континента - Европейский и Азиатский; точно так же объединяет в своих границах множество цивилизаций и народов; точно так же является христианским государством, в котором, однако, живут и мусульмане, и даже буддисты. России необходимо обеспечить мирное сосуществование столь разных своих граждан и решить вопрос: европейская она страна или евразийская. Бурная история Российской империи, ставшей теперь Российской Федерацией, ставит вопрос, имеющий ключевое значение для будущего континента, называемого Европой, и Европейского союза, границы которого пока не определены.

The first volumetric popular science study of the closed cities of Russia, also known as closed cities. A native of 'Sorokovka', the once closed city of Ozersk, Nadezhda Kutepova combined in one book the scattered data on the parts of the 'atomic shield' of the USSR scattered across the country. History and modernity, facts and memories, everyday life and big politics - these intersections form the most complete picture of what is happening outside the walls of objects that still live according to different rules than the rest of the state.

Mark Galeotti is the go-to expert on organized crime in Russia, consulted by governments and police around the world. Now, Western readers can explore the fascinating history of the vory v zakone, a group that has survived and thrived amid the changes brought on by Stalinism, the Cold War, the Afghan War, and the end of the Soviet experiment. The vory-as the Russian mafia is also known-was born early in the twentieth century, largely in the Gulags and criminal camps, where they developed their unique culture. Identified by their signature tattoos, members abided by the thieves' code, a strict system that forbade all paid employment and cooperation with law enforcement and the state. Based on two decades of on-the-ground research, Galeotti's captivating study details the vory's journey to power from their early days to their adaptation to modern-day Russia's free-wheeling oligarchy and global opportunities beyond.

The Splendid and the Vile, Erik Larson shows, in cinematic detail, how Churchill taught the British people 'the art of being fearless.' It is a story of political brinkmanship, but it's also an intimate domestic drama, set against the backdrop of Churchill's prime-ministerial country home, Chequers; his wartime retreat, Ditchley, where he and his entourage go when the moon is brightest and the bombing threat is highest; and of course 10 Downing Street in London. Drawing on diaries, original archival documents, and once-secret intelligence reports -some released only recently - Larson provides a new lens on London's darkest year through the day-to-day experience of Churchill and his family: his wife, Clementine; their youngest daughter, Mary, who chafes against her parents' wartime protectiveness; their son, Randolph, and his beautiful, unhappy wife, Pamela; Pamela's illicit lover, a dashing American emissary; and the advisers in Churchill's 'Secret Circle,' to whom he turns in the hard

Mary Stuart's life was filled with unprecedented drama and controversy. Becoming Queen of Scots at the age of nine months and Queen of France at the age of sixteen, she ascended the throne, which was her birthright, at eighteen. As the head of one of the most troubled countries in Europe, torn apart by religious conflict and power struggles, Mary led armies to victory and defeat; she survived the murder of her second husband and married what was called his murderer. At twenty-five, she was held captive by another queen - Elizabeth Tudor, who signed Mary's death sentence after nineteen years of imprisonment. Renowned historian and biographer John Guy examines the maze of conspiracies that the Scottish lords wove to seize power and the efforts of Elizabeth's ministers to exclude Mary from the rightful heirs to the English throne. It offers completely new interpretations of a famous story that has inspired writers, poets, composers, artists and filmmakers for centuries. The book formed th

'Commentary on Antiquity' is the first book by Paola Volkova, written by her on the basis of her own course of lectures 'Bridge over the Abyss,' as if throwing a bridge from one era to another, connecting the arts of different times and peoples. A brilliant teacher and storyteller, with her books, lectures and simple conversations P. Volkova instilled in students and listeners a sense of beauty, trying to awaken their interest in beauty. This book invites us on a journey through the centuries. The pages show new connections between distant forms that do not lie on the surface: from Stonehenge to the Globe Theater, from Crete to pre-Hispanic bullfighting, from the European Mediterranean to 20th century conceptualism.

When so much in Russia has changed, the banya remains. For over one thousand years Russians of every economic class, political party, and social strata have treated bathing as a communal activity integrating personal hygiene and public health with rituals, relaxation, conversations, drinking, political intrigue, business, and sex. Communal steam baths have survived the Mongols, Peter the Great, and Soviet communism and remain a central and unifying national custom. Combining the ancient elements of earth, water, and fire, the banya paradoxically cleans bodies and spreads disease, purifies and defiles, creates community and underscores difference.

The book by Suzanne Shattenberg, a professor of modern history and culture at the University of Bremen, is a political biography of Leonid Brezhnev, who held senior management positions in the USSR for 18 years (from 1964 to 1982). The author recreates Brezhnev's life from the moment of birth in the village of Kamenskoe in December 1906. The readers are offered the image of a politician who, in his work at the highest party and state posts, was genuinely driven by the interests of preserving peace and raising the standard of living of the Soviet people. His personal political experience played a significant role in this. Brezhnev appears not as a hero of jokes, not as a poster character in history, but as a living person. The book is based on publications and documents from the archives of Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Kazakhstan, as well as many Western European countries.

The deformation of the country's economy, the almost complete stop of industry, the reorientation of agricultural production to drug-containing crops, and trade to smuggling import-export operations are shown.

  • On Sale!
History
Настоящая книга представляет собой сенсационное историческое исследование, в котором на основе подлинных документов из архива ОГПУ-НКВД доказывается, что причиной знаменитых сталинских процессов против врагов народа была не политическая, а экономическая подоплека. По мнению автора, которое он убедительно аргументирует архивными изысканиями, все высокопоставленные враги народа на самом деле были не иностранными шпионами, а матерыми коррупционерами, наживавшимися на общенародном добре. Для того чтобы не нести на себе позорное клеймо вора, они и делали признания своего участия в самых чудовищных заговорах и преступлениях, которые до сих пор удивляют историков и читателей. Иначе зачем, например, чекистам фальсифицировать список ценных вещей, изъятых у своего бывшего начальника Генриха Ягоды, который на суде не фигурировал в качестве основного доказательства его вины. Зато есть протоколы его допросов. Кто-то считает их полностью сфальсифицированными, кто-то утверждает, что в них есть достоверные факты, кто-то полностью верит всему изложенному в них. Для справки - тот же Генрих Ягода так и не реабилитирован.

Since the second half of the 19th century, more and more Russian women support themselves - they enter the civil service, gain recognition in pedagogy, medicine, journalism, even in such a purely 'male' field as jurisprudence ... A financially independent woman has a choice - to get married and give birth children, devote themselves to a profession or try to combine both. At the same time, the patriarchal family undergoes significant changes, and a new household order arises. The book by Varvara Ponomareva and Lyubov Khoroshilova is the first attempt, based on the documents of the era, to trace the evolution of the world of a Russian woman in conditions where, with the gradual acquisition of rights and individual freedom, she has the opportunity to independently decide her fate, including arranging her personal life and getting a professional education.

The invention of the railroad awakened great hopes for technical progress in Russia. The tsarist government dreamed that the network of railways would unite the empire. Engineers and traffic planners appealed to the civilizing influence of modern infrastructure. The construction of railroads literally set in motion a multinational empire. Railways opened previously difficult regions and contributed to the explosive growth of geographic mobility. In 1879, the explosion of the imperial train showed the vulnerability of the political and spatial order in the era of technical modernity. The monograph for the first time highlights the diverse and ambivalent consequences of the construction of railways in a cultural and social perspective. Using the methodological approaches to the sociology of space, the author of the book traces new ways of organizing space in the era of steam engines.

The garden city is a romanticized picture of the Western way of life in suburban settlements with picturesque streets and rows of cottages immersed in greenery with well-groomed facades, next to fields and water meadows. Against the background of Soviet reality - the barracks or two-story wooden half-rotten buildings of the 1930s, the Khrushchev monotonous industrial panel five-story buildings from the 1950s to the 1960s ? this image, which was almost forbidden in the Soviet period, awoke fantasy and spawned dreams. Why in the USSR with the beginning of industrialization, the previously popular idea of the garden city was officially rejected? Why did the doctrine of the Soviet workers' settlement, which came to take its place, practically turned into a kind of hut-communal apartments for 85% of the population, exactly the same communal apartments in two-storey wooden houses for 10-12% of middle-level managers working in town-forming enterprises, tiny detached cottage settlements, protected by the NKVD, for a narrow circle of the party-Soviet elite? The reader will find answers to these and many other questions in this book.

Из литературного наследия известного писателя, журналиста и публициста Эрнста Генри (1904-1990), прославившегося еще в 1930-е годы бестселлерами "Гитлер над Европой?" и "Гитлер против СССР". Сама его жизнь похожа на увлекательную книгу: первая его командировка в Берлин совпала с убийством Карла Либкнехта и Розы Люксембург. Далее - международные "тюремные университеты": Германия, Польша, отечественная Лубянка... На Лубянке и был задуман философско-публицистический роман "Прометей", который автор считал своим лучшим произведением. Этот роман-предостережение об опасности дегуманизации общества не имел шансов быть опубликованным в то время. Как и "Записка", адресованная главному идеологу СССР М.А.Суслову: "Гигантские жертвы внутри страны не оправданы ничем. Именно так рассудят будущие поколения; они молчать не будут".

This time, history teaches us several important lessons: about the limitations of unlimited power, about the need and riskiness of reforms, about how Russia can and cannot be ruled. The book tells how the "eternal" Russian knots were initially tied up: the national question, the internal social confrontation, the thirst for freedom and the fear of the chaos it creates.
