Cultural Atlas of Russia and the Soviet UnionBook - 1989
Forget the fluffy text (example: "Peter Kropotkin gave anarchism intellectual stuffing."). Instead, stuff yourself on the 50 maps, 200 color and 100 b&w photographs, chronological table, glossary, gazetteer, bibliography and index. Embracing geography, history, archaeology, anthropology and the arts, the Atlas surveys Russian civilization from prehistory to the present day. In addition to the main text are a number of feature spreads and insets devoted to topics of particular interest. Beautifully produced. 9.5x12" Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
