Viking - Penguin Group, London, 1992. Hardcover, 11¾" x 9½", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc (confined to ffep). VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Red cloth-bound boards with gold title to spine, map endpapers, 221 full-colour photographs, several old b&w reproductions, double-page 1991 map, and chronology of events. The Russian Empire resulted from three centuries of sustained expanion, northwards, southwards, eastwards, and westwards. Now it is no longer a monolithic, one-part state, but a fractured one under the impact of independence and democracy movements. To understand its current developments, the story of how the people became part of the great Russian, later Soviet, empire is here recounted by an acknowledged authority on Soviet affairs, Sir Fitzroy Maclean. Drawing on his personal experiences and his travels over half a century, he tells of the life and traditions of the different nationalities; and provides over two hundred of his personal photographs to complement his vivid and lively text.
