Description

Product Description Upon publication in 2001, Russia’s First Civil War by Chester Dunning was greeted by scholars as a “historical tour de force,” the first major post-Marxist reassessment of the Time of Troubles. Now available in an abridged paperback, A Short History of Russia’s First Civil War is ideally suited for classroom use. Review “Dunning’s new book is a historical tour de force, a major reconceptualization of Russia’s Time of Troubles, 1598–1613.” —Carol B. Stevens, American Historical Review“A sweeping, detailed, readable account of the first Russian civil war and an excellent analysis of the war’s causes and development. . . . This one deserves a place on the shelf of anyone interested in the period.” —Martha Luby Lahana, Russian Review“Dunning’s book is a welcome addition to the literature on the Time of Troubles, offering a chronological narrative of events that provides more detail on the military campaigns of 1604–1607 than other English-language accounts.” —Maureen Perrie, Slavic Review“This is clearly the best and most judicious account of the Time of Troubles in any language. A magnificent achievement that will significantly benefit the reading world, especially those interested in Russia and comparative civil disorders.” —Richard Hellie, University of Chicago“We can thank Chester S. L. Dunning for explaining, much more than anyone before him, why and how this stunning reversal of fortunes occurred.” —Marshall Poe, Times Literary Supplement“Dunning’s book on Russia’s First Civil War is a highly detailed, readable account of a turbulent time in Russian history that has relevancy even today as Russia continues to struggle with its infant democracy.” —Leo J. Daugherty III, Journal of Slavic Military Studies About the Author Chester S. L. Dunning is Associate Professor of History at Texas A&M University. He is editor and translator of The Russian Empire and Grand Duchy of Muscovy by Jacques Margeret (1983).
