Course Description

HIST 180A
ST: Russia from the Middle Ages to the Present
Spring

Russia from its founding in the 9th century to the present with special attention to the history of Tsarism, Communism, and the post-Cold War era. We focus on the 1917 Revolution and the Soviet Union, the rise of Stalin and the gulags, the Second World War, and nearly half a century of Cold War with the USSR as a superpower. We conclude with the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s and the rise of a new Russia led by Vladimir Putin with a renewed challenge to the West. Throughout we will discuss the relations of Russia and the West: similarities and differences.
