Russia: A 1000-Year Chronicle of the Wild East
Martin Sixsmith

Russia: A 1000-Year Chronicle of the Wild East

Combining in-depth research with his personal experiences as the BBC Moscow correspondent for almost twenty years, Sixsmith tells Russia's full and fascinating story, from its foundation in the last years of the tenth century to the first years of the twenty-first, skillfully tracing the conundrums of modern Russia to their roots in its troubled past. Covering politics, music, literature and art, he explores the myths Russians have created from their history. Marking the twentieth anniversary of the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Russia is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the complex political landscape of Russia and its unique place in the modern world. Sixsmith immerses readers in the Russian landscape and peoples with descriptions of places he's visited and quotations of poetry. Sixsmith effectively updates the continuities of Russian history, motivating readers to check out such scholarly surveys as Russia and the Russians, by Geoffrey Hosking.

Author George Martin Sixsmith (born 24 September 1954) is a British author, journalist and radio/television presenter, primarily working for the BBC. Sixsmith was born in Cheshire and educated at the Manchester Grammar School where he studied Russian to O-level, and subsequently A-level, then at Oxford, Harvard, the Sorbonne University in Paris, and in St. Petersburg in Russia. He was a Slavics Tutor at Harvard and wrote his postgraduate thesis about Russian poetry.
